The pain, the torn and blistered skin, the hours of endless practice, it all seems so pointless, says the (Mancunian) voice-over in this short film. But then, all of a sudden, for a split second, you’re in midair and the difference between being on the rock and down below blurs and you know exactly why you’re doing it. Shot quickly, with great images and original editing, in just a few minutes, Midair shows what attracts young Brits to climbing. Step out wide and come in.
This film will be screened in one block together with Höhenrausch. After the films there will be a Q&A with Prof. Thomas Küpper, expert on mountain sickness and its treatment.
