Brit Rock Screening

Starts Fri 10th Nov 2023 at 19:00
Ends at 21:00
Cost € 10.00
Max 150 attendees
Type IN-PERSON Event

Location: Kemmy Business School (KBG-10)

This year we are screening Brit Rock as part of their 2023 film tour! 

Tickets are €10 & are available at: BRIT ROCK 2023 Film Tour Tickets, Fri 10 Nov 2023 at 19:00 | Eventbrite

Some details on the films:

GODDESS OF CRAIC
This film tells the story of rising trad star Freja Shannon. We join half-Swedish, half-Irish Freja in her ancestral homelands as she pursues her climbing goals for the season – ‘Sista Bossen’ E8 6c at the world-class granite climbing area of Bohuslan, Sweden and ‘Snell’s Law’ E7 6c at the Burren on the west coast of Ireland. Freja is as affable as she is committed once on the lead, resulting in captivating and gripping footage that will leave your jaw on the floor.
The film also delves into Freja’s past, where we learn of her less-than-glamorous journey to becoming a professional climber – and how she overcame her inner doubts to break through as a leading female trad climber and alpinist. Whippers, sends and Nordic power screams all-inclusive in this spectacular and entertaining film.
'Goddess of Craic' 25mins

SHINING STONES
Climber Robbie Phillips chances upon a little-known mountain in the very far north of Scotland whilst driving from east coast to west. After some research, Robbie discovers the mountain is called Ben Loyal, and that climbing legend Simon Nadin has been developing a couple of lines at the crag. Simon tells him that there is something very special up there…
What Robbie finds at Ben Loyal is off the scale: endless bouldering, highballs, countless quality granite tors and buttresses with untapped climbing potential. But all this pales into insignificance compared with the main face, which holds the future of trad climbing on what is surely one of Britain’s greatest cliffs.
A truly stunning film of hard new routing by Robbie and Simon in an extraordinary setting.
'Shining Stones' 25mins

HELMCKEN FALLS
Emma Powell and Neil Gresham join the original pioneers of this unique ice climbing venue in British Columbia, Tim Emmett and Klemen ‘Klem’ Premrl once again push the boundaries of steep, sporty ice. After years of teasing, Tim finally invites his life-long friend Neil Gresham, along with top mixed climber Emma Powell to stoke up their pioneering spirit and develop some new lines at this surreal venue.
'Helmcken Falls' 15mins

HARD GIT
Controversial and never far from the news; climber Matt Wright goes trailblazing across the UK, making wild first ascents, hard solos and bold new lines. Loveable rogue and working-class hero Matt puts his money where his mouth is in this tour-de-force of hard climbing. After weighing up his time-verses-routes equation, Matt abandons an attempt of the infamous Rhapsody (E11) and sets off on a quest to climb new inspiring lines. He does not disappoint, with his energetic journey culminating in the first ascent of ‘Magical Thinking’ E10 7a – a heart-stoppingly dangerous route at Pavey Ark, Lake District.
'Hard Git' 20mins

HEAD JAM
Filmmaker Alastair Lee turns the camera on himself in this deep introspective story of triumph through adversity. Perceived as a successful man with the perfect life, Al experiences unexpectedly dark times. Fearing he will lose everything, we watch a man on the brink claw his way from despair, using climbing and training to find peace and salvation.
Having never been the greatest of climbers, Al demolishes his inner punter – attempting to fulfil his potential by setting his sights on routes he’s spent 30 years avoiding. Includes hard first ascents, calamitous trad leads and bold on sights.
Carnage ensues almost every time Al sets off on a lead in this gripping, hilarious, emotional and ultimately inspiring story of a man in struggle as he seeks to reconnect with himself. Adding to the riotous flavour of this production, Al asks the climbers he’s working with to do the filming.
'Headjam' 35mins

Total running time 120 mins
