The Reel Rock 17 Film Tour  – Galileo Open Air Cinema

April 14 @ 6:00 pm - 10:30 pm

The Galileo Open Air Cinema is back from October 2022 to April 2023.

Screening a variety of new, family favorites and cult classic films at some of Cape Town’s most magnificent venues.

The Reel Rock 17 Film Tour, one of climbing’s greatest celebrations, returns with a new collection of three world-premiere films.
Don’t miss three heart-stopping new films featuring the year’s biggest climbing & adventure stories: a wild expedition on Nameless Tower in Pakistan; a new cutting-edge route in a massive limestone cave in France; and a journey to Palestine’s West Bank to explore the power of climbing to change lives. Presented by The North Face and supported by Black Diamond & Yeti.

Burning the Flame | Featuring: Barbara Zangerl and Jacopo Larcher | Locations: Nameless Tower, Pakistan
Big wall free climbing masters Babsi and Jacopo seek their greatest challenge yet: a free ascent of Eternal Flame, an elusive 3,000-ft. route up the legendary Nameless Tower in Pakistan’s Karakoram range. Facing extreme conditions and 5.13 trad climbing at high altitude, a two-year quest comes down to one short weather window. Captured with drones and on-mountain cameras in one of the most stunning places on earth, Burning the Flame transports viewers to a place normally off-limits to all but the world’s best climbers.

DNA | Featuring: Seb Bouin | Location: Verdon Gorge, France
29-year-old French sport climber Seb Bouin has been quietly working his way through the elite grades, culminating in his attempt to establish a long pitch out an overhanging cave in the Verdon Gorge of France. His proposed line is so futuristic, the moves so improbable, that if Seb can put it all together it may be the most difficult route ever climbed.

Resistance Climbing | Featuring: Andrew Bisharat | Location: Palestine
In the strife-torn hills of Palestine, a diverse crew of Bedouins, dirtbags and urban professionals embraces climbing as a much-needed respite from the burdens of the Israeli occupation. American writer & climber Andrew Bisharat visits the West Bank to explore his own roots and the power of climbing to transform lives.
