So I show up in Daejeon on Wed and you will come get me and bring me to the film fest?! Wonder if it'll be in English. . .as many films are likely to be in "3rd" languages. . .

Never heard of the Trento Mountain Film Fest but I have been climbing in Trento! Certainly worth a Wednesday trip to break up "exam week". . . and while we're at it. . . I have this Fri off. . . could head to Daegu Thurs evening or Fri AM (via Daejeon?) and we might could sneak in a day of trad. . . er. . . if we actually want to climb, we might try to get the Swede to get there a day early and clean up any really messy pitches!
"If you can't do something well, you might as well learn to enjoy doing it poorly." -- from a de-motivational poster, but I find it oddly liberating!

I saw then in Seoul tonight at O2. I liked the first film as it was not sound (from the early days - Interesting to see how they before my entrance...). And "K2" was good but it was a bit hard to read through the Korean Subtitles (There were English original subtitles here - The speaker was american but the italien climbers was unfortunatly talking...). As the Trento festival is in Italy, the films was mainly from Italy. One nice film with down hill skiing also...

The time for everything was 2.30hours

And I got two issues of American climbing magazine "Climbing". ;-)

I went to the screening in Daejeon. It was pretty good. Loved the 1910 hemp rope simul-climb no belay tool, no helmet, no worries ascent of a totally awesome Dolomites peak by Emilio Cominici (sic) and partner...fan-bloody-tastic silent b/w film. THe French made extreme ski thing was pretty good too, and the Magic line on K2 was inspiring enough (except for the strangely annoying English narration...I dunno why I didn't like that...it just sounded condescending, pompous and at odds with the groove of the Italian's climb.)
Anyway at end of show we had a mini-lottey draw and shanja came away with a spanky new Mammut cap...so go and see it. If we support these screenings well maybe Korea will get bigger and better international climbing festivals etc to pop over.
