It is a story about courage, perseverance, and at the same time an attempt to understand whether physical challenges can be transformed into a symbol of hope and determination.



,,Keď sme dostali pozvánku do filmovej poroty, bola to pre nás veľká česť – a tiež veľká zodpovednosť. Súťažné filmy pochádzali zo štrnástich rôznych krajín a líšili sa dĺžkou, štýlom, námetom aj odkazom. Porotu zaujalo, koľko snímok prinieslo zásadné témy ako environmentálne problémy, čoraz väčšia prítomnosť žien v outdoore, riskovanie a emocionálna daň, ktorú zanechá na preživších, ako športové aktivity môžu prispieť k zlepšeniu psychického zdravia a vyliečeniu zo závislosti, dosah lezenia na pôvodných obyvateľov a vplyv epidémie na našu honbu za dobrodružstvom. Porota sa pre pandémiu nemohla stretnúť osobne, ale vďaka zoomu a ladnému vedeniu riaditeľa festivalu sme hladko spolupracovali, pričom každý porotca a každá porotkyňa prispeli vlastnými znalosťami a skúsenosťami. Výnimočné filmy sa ukázali veľmi skoro. A všetci sme sa tešili, že sme si mohli pozrieť pôsobivé „domáce“ snímky od slovenských filmárov. Hoci sme k dohode dospeli ľahko, museli sme urobiť niekoľko ťažkých rozhodnutí. Kiežby sme mohli udeliť viac cien. Premyslieť si film, napísať ho, natočiť a spracovať si vyžaduje odvahu a zručnosti a už len to si zaslúži našu chválu. Gratulujeme každému filmárovi v tejto súťaži a srdečne blahoželáme víťazom.” - Maria Coffey
