Summary

The great northern prow of Mount Roraima soars from the depths of the Amazon rainforest like the prow of a gigantic ship. Shrouded in cloud, drenched by torrential rain and guarded by vertical jungle, deep mud and overhanging cliffs, local legend has it that only those of pure soul will ever see the summit of Mount Roraima.

Inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World and the Disney/Pixar’s animated movie UP!, House of the Gods follows Leo Houlding and team on their real world quest through 100km of untracked jungle, into a unique slime forest and up the desperately steep cliff.

Do they have what it takes to reach the summit and to share the climb with their indigenous jungle guides and young climbing partner on her first expedition?

The choice of the festival

An old-fashioned adventure, just the way we like it! A group of climbers set off to climb a wall in the famous Tepuy region, not far from the Salto d’el Angel, the highest waterfall on the planet. An expedition straight out of a Conan Doyle novel (The Lost World) with its procession of tropical rains, insects, dampness, mud and mists. It takes a typically British spirit and humour to enjoy the long approach that ends on stark rock. Fortunately, for a few minutes, the mist breaks and the view is grandiose. Phew. A French premiere.
