THE FILMS ARE:
Lucky to have survived after a horrific BASE jumping accident, Lisa Beasley must now face an extended recovery period that brings her closer to her mother as well as her first love; the sea. She discovers the beauty of the Cape Town tidal pools and she must now work to protect them from the harmful historical cleaning protocols that kill the marine life she has come to love.
DIRECTOR: Trygve Heide // South Africa
The Ghosts Above
Everest is the eternal subject of mountain films. Who achieved the first summit? Was it really George Mallory? On this quest there are reflections on the history of Everest expeditions, the fraught relationship between indigenous guides and expeditioners, the rigours of high-alpine mountaineering, and the commercialisation of sacred Everest. A brutally honest look at the current state of affairs.
DIRECTOR: Taylor Rees // DIRECTOR: Renan Ozturk // United States
