Cerro Torre - Mountaineering in Patagonia
Making-of the movie Ritmo Latino :
The story of two alpinists, Bruno Sourzac and Ramiro Calvo, bewitched by the same mountain: Cerro Torre. In the heart of Patagonia, this granite monolith rejects many suitors, even the most gifted ones.
Ramiro has produced a funny and touching film of the Franco-Argentinean team making the ascent. While not a tango, the music driving the climbers is a key element in the story. Ramiro talks about how and why he made the film, underlining values dear to Argentineans: friendship, laughter and passion...

A Mountaineer Who Dares Greatly: Dave Hahn
Into the Arena - Dave Hahn is a mountaineer with a serious resume. One of his many accomplishment; more summits of Mount Everest than any non-Sherpa climber with 15. Teddy Roosevelt said, It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.” - Rainier Films -
