WINNER OF THE BEST MOUNTAIN FILM AT THE TORELLO MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL 2012
WINNER OF THE BEST MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE FILM AT THE KENDAL MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL 2012
NEW FOR 2012 Adventure climber Leo Houlding and film maker Alastair Lee are back with another sumptuous production of truly epic proportions. This time Leo (UK) and fellow climbers Sean Leary (USA) and Jason Pickles (Salford) head deep into the Amazon in an attempt to make the first ascent of the east face of the remote tepuy; Cerro Autana.
The action beings with a covert journey via military check-points and secret ports through Amazonas State. Our team of clandestine climbers disguised as tourists travel down the Orinoco River to the remote village of Ceguera where they make a traumatic psychotropic visit to the local Shaman to gain access to the sacred mountain.
From here sweltering humidity, porter chaos and an assortment of jungle nastiest are just a part of this spectacular journey of self-discovery and big wall hunting. Follow our team of redoubtable characters as they find their way up the jungle infested rock face as they are amazed not only at the climbing but a luxury wall camp in the incredible Autana Cave system just below the summit of the tepuy (highest elevated cave system in the world).
An adventure unlike any other, adventure film making takes another step into the unknown with superb results. Original, experimental, entertaining and visually stunning, Posing Productions presents; Autana.
About us - We're a volunteer built 70 seat cinema (everything donated by local businesses/community etc) in the north of Manchester and after 12 weeks of non-stop work we've been open for about 2 months now.
We're fortunate enough to be able to show Autana *and* provide the Q&A and are trying to make people aware of this (as well as ourselves) via a few different methods that aren't Facebook or Twitter (hence this).
Tickets for the event are available here - http://autana.eventbrite.com/ - and are £6, but pay on the door will be available too (unless of course we sell out).
You can find us at Miners Community Arts And Music Centre Teddington Road, Moston, Manchester, M40 0DJ. 0161 682 6253.
