Our Judges say:
Absolutely fantastic - wonderful to learn about Gwen Moffat and see Claire and Jen follow in her footsteps. Can imagine watching it over and over
The incredible story of 90 year old adventurer Gwen Moffatt: barefoot climber, crime writer, cold water swimmer, a woman whose love for mountains know no bounds. An extraordinary record of an extraordinary life, lived by an extraordinary person.
Paul Hodgson Music Judge
Inspiration, fun and a new insight in to climbing
Ed Birch Director of Salt-Street productions
Operation Moffat takes inspiration and wit from the colourful climbing life of Britain's first female mountain guide, Gwen Moffat. Grappling with her preference for mountains over people, adventure over security, wilderness over tick lists, writer Claire Carter and filmmaker Jen Randall climb, run, scramble and swim their way through some of Gwen's most cherished British landscapes. Including candid interviews with 91 year old Gwen, a fresh take on landscape photography, previously unseen archive materials and unashamedly real action sequences, the film captures Gwen's infectious excitement for a life constantly seeking something strange or beautiful around the next bend.
