NZ Mountain Film Festival: Valley Uprising
The greatest untold story of Yosemite Valley counterculture. For 50 years Yosemite’s cliffs have drawn explorers and madmen to leave materialism behind and venture onto the high, lonesome granite. The characters of Yosemite carved out an ‘extreme bohemian’ lifestyle, living as beatnik vagabonds, clashing with National Park authorities and pioneering the boldest climbs on Earth. This is the riveting tale of this bold tradition and half a century’s struggle against the laws of gravity, and the laws of the land. Banff Grand Prize Winner.
