The Nahanni Whisperer

Audio: ,


Le Passeur de la Nahanni – Four young climbers dream of climbing the Lotus Flower Tower, a legendary big wall, somewhere in the Cirque of the Unclimbables in the furthest outreaches of Northern Canada. For 800 m of climbing, they will have to face 550 km of dangerous Nahanni river over a whole month of total independence. Given that they have only limited experience in this type of adventure, they persuade Dom, a seasoned traveller 33 years their senior, to help them get this expedition off the ground. Whereas Dom will be fulfilling his teenage dream of riding the Nahanni rapids, he is also about to realise that the Lotus Flower will be his last ‘Big Wall’ climb. A poetic and fun adventure of passing the baton between generations, a point where the dream becomes reality. Finalist – Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival 2018.
