George Smith - Upside Down Wales Video

© Ray Wood
North Wales funny man George Smith has spent the last few years weaving together a mysterious plot which is about to be unleashed on the unsuspecting public at LLAMFF 2008. His new film 'Upside Down Wales' will be premièring next Saturday night (8th March 2008) as a main event at LLAMFF

George has the climbing CV to back up his irrepressible humour, with first ascents of many of North Wales' hardest routes. This film blends cutting edge climbing footage with a unique insight in to the landscape and culture of North Wales. The film is the work of a small team of experts led by the man behind the cult climbing film Stone Monkey - Al Hughes.

Hosted on the DMM website (Click Here) is an excellent interview with George detailing his motivations for the film, the interview is enhanced by a stunning photograph from Ray Wood.
