Our Judges say:
An inspiring and topical story about stepping outside your comfort zone, in the mountains with your mates!
Must watch for this festival a must watch for the world.
Ed Birch Director of Salt-Street productions
Cool, inspiring film about a black climbing wall in Memphis Tennessee, Memphis Rocks. It is, by some margin, the best made and most entertaining film in this whole festival, while also having the most resonance and meaning - a true "must-see "We're the little brothers of rock climbing and we need our family." "I was battling my demons but they all melted away when I was on the ice wall." "I'm no longer a street dude, I'm an alpinist". "Why does everything bad have to be called black? Like black ice." "Pressure make diamonds."
Paul Hodgson Music Judge
How can our world be so bad and so good at the same time? There was so much courage from everybody involved in making this film happen. But what a fabulous result!
A crew of aspiring ice climbers from the Memphis Rox gym travels to the frozen wilds of Montana, where mentors Manoah Ainuu, Conrad Anker and Fred Campbell share their love of winter adventure in the mountains.
