'Distilled' (2013) -
Scotland in winter is an arena where mountaineers pit their skills against exacting climbs often in ferocious conditions. It is respected by climbers around the world. Distilled examines what makes the climbing here so potent.
Andy Cave first climbed in Scotland as a teenager. This was the start of a lifelong journey for Andy, which took him from the depths of a Yorkshire coal mine to the peaks of the Himalayas. As the story unfolds we see dramatic footage of Andy climbing some of Scotland's classic and most challenging winter routes in the full spectrum of conditions that Scotland's mountains can conjure.
Distilled is a celebration of Scottish winter climbing and a poignant profile of a life spent in the mountains.
Also showing on the night, 'The Pinnacle' (2010) -
In one legendary week on Ben Nevis in 1960 Jimmy Marshall and Robin Smith climbed six first ascents. Exactly 50 years later Dave MacLeod and Andy Turner pay tribute to Smith and Marshall by setting out to repeat all the routes that were climbed in that famous week.
