Kylmää kiveä from Blue Kangoo Films is a documentary about how Finnish climbing became what it is today.
From the very warm Brazil (yesterday's trailer) to the marginally warm Finland. This film presents the pioneers of Finnish climbing, the first of whom began climbing in 1954, and follows the evolution to the present day, perhaps suggesting how it is that this very flat country now produces climbers like Nalle Hukkataival and Andy Gullsten.
We also get a peek at what the future could look like, Nalle Hukkataival's Sisu-project.
