2019, Spain, 80

Director: Jaime Murciego & Pablo Iraburu


Five native Bolivian women set off on a unique expedition. To symbolise liberation and empowerment, they intend to climb the highest mountain in America, the Aconcagua. Their appearance is surprising: they climb dressed in their traditional skirt. They are more than mere climbers, they are brave women for whom mountains are a place where they can feel alive, happy and free. Their adventure will show to the world an inspiring way of being a woman, living tradition and connecting with Mother Nature.

The documentary by Pawel Wysoczański shows Jerzy Jurek Kukuczka's career. He went from being a bootblack, to becoming a millionaire. From being a socialist worker, to turning into an international media star. From being the man who climbed without any money or equipment, to trying to become the first alpinist who climbs 'The Crown of the Himalayas'

Even though his mother, the great British mountaineer Alison Hargreaves, died on K2 when he was only 6 years old, Tom Ballard never turned his back on the mountain, indeed, he dedicated his life fully to it, until he disappeared on an expedition to Nanga Parbat in February 2019, at the age of 30 years. Among the fabulous feats of his short but intense alpine career, he highlighted the project of climbing alone, and in winter, the six major alpine north faces: the Cima Grande di Lavaredo, the Piz Badile, the Matterhorn, the Grandes Jorasses, the Petit Dru and the Eiger. He became the first person to complete this feat in a single season. His father was his greatest support, from austerity and with a comprehensive character.
