ABOUT THE FILMS

THE HIGH ROAD

While the world’s best boulderers push standards close to the ground, Nina Wiliams’ sights are set higher. She is among the only women who climb elite-level problems that are 30, 40, even 50 feet tall — with no rope. In this profile of an emerging star athlete, Nina Williams flexes her guns and tests her nerves well into the no-fall zone.

UNITED STATES OF JOE’S

In rural Utah, a valley of world-class bouldering is nestled among a conservative community of Mormons, cowboys and coal miners. When a ragged band of punk rock climbers show up, the two cultures inevitably clash. After years of antagonism, a group of climbers work with locals to build a more harmonious future. But in this divided era, is that even possible?

THE NOSE SPEED RECORD

For decades, an elite handful of climbers have competed for the coveted speed record on the 3,000-foot Nose of El Capitan, risking big falls to shave mere seconds off the fastest time. When a record set by Alex Honnold is broken by underdogs Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds, Honnold drafts Tommy Caldwell to help him establish a record that will stand the test of time. Honnold pushes for perfection, while Caldwell, a family man, wrestles with the risk amid a series of accidents on the wall that lay bare the consequences of any mistake.
