Directed by Peter Mortimer and Nick Rosen, The Alpinist centers on the life of 23-year-old Canadian Marc-André Leclerc. Sans rope and any reasonable form of support, Leclerc’s solo ascents captivated and inspired alpinism enthusiasts. Solo climbing is undoubtedly dangerous, and thankfully The Alpinist offers an unvarnished (and engrossing) look at Leclerc’s life.

My interview with Brette Harrington:

We review The Alpinist on the latest episode of Find Your Film podcast:

“Marc and I got along very, very well, and we also kind of developed our adult life together (and our) philosophies.” said Harrington. “Before I met Marc, I was in university and was still figuring out what I wanted to do in life. He was still quite young – he was 19 when we met and I was 20. We formed this way of climbing together that we just learned together. I think that was really important.”
