Climber Marc-André Leclerc climbs alone and away from the spotlight. On remote walls around the world, the Canadian has achieved some of the most daring solo climbs in climbing history. Yet he doesn’t draw attention to himself. Filmed over a period of two years, his mountaineering exploits – particularly in North America and Patagonia – have left their mark on the mountaineering world.

Bande annonce

The choice of the festival

Marc-André Leclerc, an extraordinary climber who has made solo climbing his religion and ice his home. When filmmaker Peter Mortimer begins his film, he sets his camera up by a cliff in British Columbia and waits patiently for the star climber to come down to answer his questions. Marc André is a bit uncomfortable, he would rather go back to the forest where he lives in a tent with his girlfriend Brette Harrington. In the dead of winter, Peter films terrifying solos on fragile ice. He tries to make appointments with the climber, who is never there and doesn’t seem concerned by the camera on him. Marc-André is the ‘true star’ of the climbers of his time, even giving Alex Honnold a complex. An eventful film for an unforgettable character.
