Featuring at this year's Kendal Festival is Dom Bush's début film; Islands: Traditional Tales of Lakeland Climbing. Here at UKC this is something we are particularly keen to watch, having run UKC News Reports about some of the ascents featured in the film.

We asked Dom for a sneak preview of his film to show on UKC, and he has managed to come up with the goods in the form of this short trailer.

Dom commented:

"Here you go guys - I have managed to put together a quick trailer, not the best in the world but I'm a little pressed for time!"

With the Kendal festival just a week away - we're not surprised!

'Islands: Traditional Tales of Lakeland Climbing' is a three part film, giving an insight into the world of hard traditional ascents in the birthplace of rock climbing, the English Lake District.

Trailer: Islands: Traditional Tales of Lakeland Climbing

With sport climbing and bouldering gaining popularity, this film provides a deep and sometimes comical perspective on the great British trad climbing tradition. A sensitive and cinematic documentary film, that represents the Lakes and it's characters in a simple and poignant way.

Directed and produced by Dom Bush of Land and Sky Media, featuring first ascents and hard repeats from Mike Przygrodzki, Stuart Wood, Adam Hocking and James McHaffie and interviews from Dave Birkett and Leo Houlding.

Really proud to have worked on this Dom. Psyched to see it on the big screen. To those of you who don't have tickets, get up to Kendal! It's going to be an epic weekend.
