"Soundscape", Timmy Oneill, USA, 2023, 15'

Soundscape shares the sightless experience of climbing a mountain via echo location, touch and imagination.

Soundscape features Erik Weihenmayer, a global adventure athlete and author who is fully blind, as he ascends a massive alpine rock face deep in the Sierra Nevada. Using expert camera work and emotive, novel animation to bring to life a concept by adaptive climbing pioneer Timmy ONeill, the film is a surprising and soulful adventure.
