Over het evenement
While this film is still travelling film festivals worldwide and is not yet available on VOD, you can come and watch it exclusively in the intimate setting of climbing gym Balance! Our vibrant climbing community counts many fans of Adam Ondra, because he honours climbing with his pure personality, creativity and passion for outdoor climbing.
The film starts at 8 pm, optionally you can come climb between 4pm and 7.30 pm.
"Adam Ondra is a living legend. A master among climbers, a record-breaker who “flashes” the most complicated mountains, a virtuoso of rocks and walls, his fame is unquestionable and his talent an inspiration and a true gift from nature. Haunted by the idea of always going further, his life is marked by training and the exploration of new paths – always more complicated, always more satisfying. Alongside him is Iva, his girlfriend, a professional of the same discipline and an attentive and caring companion. Thanks to the sharp eyes of Petr Záruba (director of the delicate Traces of a Landscape, VdR 2020) and Jan Šimanek, Adam Ondra:, Pushing the Limits reveals a close-up of a man who is one with his passion. The elegance of his movements – astonishingly similar to dance – and his contagious smile are captured by the camera with both admiration and intimacy. The editing of the film, drastically rejecting the frenzied rhythm of classical sports documentaries, offers us a glimpse into the daily life of a young man who becomes extraordinary as soon as he touches a rock.

Be sure to have finished your dinner well before the film starts, there can be no eating during the film screening. During the film we do not open the door, so plan your food delivery early enough.
Also, if you want to come early without climbing, you are welcome to do so. You can play games or hang out at the bar or the fire stove. Entrance on this day is only for people with a film ticket.
We are not a regular cinema hall, so we cannot guarantuee a decent seat for everyone in case the event has many guests or is even fully booked. You can always take a pillow or (low) camping seat with you.
We want to create a focused cinema surrounding while we are watching the film, so the lights in the climbing hall go out half an hour before we start the film. Also, there will be no bar service during the film screening, so order your drinks before hand if you wish to have them. There will be no break during the film, which lasts 77 minutes. Please do not eat during the film.
