FILM SUMMARY (runtime 1 hour 50 mins minutes plus an interval)

Janwaar (11 mins) USA.
Follow a rambunctious group of kids whose lives are transformed when a skatepark is built in their small Indian village.

Turn the Corner (10 mins)
Director Ned Brannigan, NZ. Can you imagine climbing Lake Hawea’s Corner Peak 53 times over 53 days? In the construction industry, 53 people take their own lives every year, the worst affected industry in NZ. Glen calls on those in his community in the hopes of starting conversations
as a method of prevention, and also to inspire others.

Momentum (20 mins) Director Liqen Studio, Australia. Follow the journey of Angie Scarth-Johnson who, by the age of 18, had climbed three 9a grades in Europe (NZ grade 35). What will she do next?

Flow State (23 mins) Director Jacob Bowling, Producer Will Nelson. A documentary traversing the highest line of extreme sport as two friends challenge each other, and themselves, to overcome past trauma and become better men, 1000m above ground.

Changabang: Return to the Shining Mountain (21 mins) Director Nick Kowalski, NZ. In 1976 British alpinists made the first ascent of the West Wall of Changabang. For the next four decades the route gained legendary status as climbers from around the world came and tried, unsuccessfully, to repeat this iconic climb. In 2022, three members of the New Zealand Alpine Team tried their
luck on this infamous climb.

New Way Up (25 mins) Director Jake Holland, UK. The Karakoram mountains are known for their huge scale and jaw-dropping beauty. Nestled within them is Gulmit Tower, a technical granite pinnacle that has never been summited. Previous teams have often failed because the highly glaciated terrain makes the approach by foot long and treacherous. Maybe a paraglider can help?
