The Dawn Wall
The Dawn Wall follows free climber Tommy Caldwell, and his climbing partner Kevin Jorgeson, as they attempt to scale the 3000ft Dawn Wall of El Captain in Yosemite National Park.
Whilst documenting Caldwell on his journey, the film also takes you through his early life and his first ascents, as well as his hardships, and what led him to take on this challenge. Following the dissolution of his marriage, Caldwell partners up with Jorgeson, and together they spend six years planning their route, culminating in the biggest challenge of their lives.
Shifting from the world of competition climbing to trad and Alpinism is no mean feat – you’ve got a whole new level of objective danger to take into consideration; from long runouts, rockfall and quickly changing weather patterns. Shifting Dreams follows the story of Caroline Ciavaldini as she makes this move into the vast world that is outdoor climbing.
Starting with Caroline’s early years as a competition climber, which involved intense commitment and focus on the single aspect of climbing. The film then moves onto how the death of Caroline’s mother plays an integral part on where she wants to take her climbing – to the wild and unexplored high-mountain peaks where she needs to learn how to get a grip of and handle her fears. Expect lots of stunning panning drone shots, as Caroline seemingly floats her away up the delicate arêtes and pinnacles found around the French Alps.
