Screening in the presence of Adam Ondra, on April 11th at 3:30pm, Grande Salle
Adam Ondra is a living legend. A master among climbers, a record-breaker who “flashes” the most complicated mountains, a virtuoso of rocks and walls, his fame is unquestionable and his talent an inspiration and a true gift from nature. Haunted by the idea of always going further, his life is marked by training and the exploration of new paths – always more complicated, always more satisfying. Alongside him is Iva, his girlfriend, a professional of the same discipline and an attentive and caring companion. Thanks to the sharp eyes of Petr Záruba (director of the delicate Traces of a Landscape, VdR 2020) and Jan Šimanek, Adam Ondra:, Pushing the Limits reveals a close-up of a man who is one with his passion. The elegance of his movements – astonishingly similar to dance – and his contagious smile are captured by the camera with both admiration and intimacy. The editing of the film, drastically rejecting the frenzied rhythm of classical sports documentaries, offers us a glimpse into the daily life of a young man who becomes extraordinary as soon as he touches a rock.
