DESCRIPTION

 

A step-change is under way in the world of Scottish rock climbing. A new generation of boulderers is exploring the country’s most rugged and beautiful places, sea cliffs and mountain peaks in search of magical movement on new-found rock.

“elements” is a rock climbing film like no other, the four chapters - Water, Earth, Air and Fire - are linked with a narrative from the ecologist and land rights activist, Alistair McIntosh, whose thoughts on faerie magic and the human spirit fix a connection between Scotland’s ancient history and the boulderer’s search for perfect movement on rock.

“elements’ is the first DVD devoted entirely to bouldering in Scotland. Filmed over six months in late 2007 and early 2008, it features dozens of ascents in new venues from all four corners of the country - including the first ascent of the hardest new boulder problem so far this year, captured on the final day’s filming.

With music by new Glasgow band, Frightened Rabbit, “elements” is released in early April 2008, to coincide with the publication of “Stone Country 2”, the new guidebook to Scottish bouldering by the writer John Watson, who also features prominently in the film.

“elements” director Peter Murray has been filming rock climbing in Scotland since 2003. His films have been screened at the Edinburgh, Dundee, Kendal and Llanberis film festivals and abroad. “elements” is the second DVD release from Xtralargerecordings. Peter Murray lives in Glasgow.
