The Art of Climbing
Switzerland, Austria / 2016 / 8' / Italian premiere
The Headless Children is one of the most demanding routes in the Rätikon chain, in the eastern Alps: over 250 m with grade 8b passages. Kilian Fischhuber tries to climb the route, to date only completed once. In parallel, there is a comparison with the works of the artist Brian Main.
A passionate climber himself, Florian Klingler's background ranges from being producer for short climbing films with David Lama’s Avaatara project in Lebanon, documentaries as “Climbing Elements” or associate producer for the Red Bull Media House feature film “Cerro Torre-A Snowball’s Chance in Hell”, in competition at Trento Film Festival 2014.
