Outdoor filmmaker Terry Abraham’s newest film is available to cinemas from Friday 13th April, and screens around the UK in a series of special events – with more to come.

Back in December 2017 I managed to get a look at Terry’s latest film – a portrait of arguably Britain’s most successful high altitude mountaineer and proud Yorkshireman Alan Hinkes. I thought it was pretty good, and gave it the thumbs up in my review for UK Hillwalking and UK Climbing.

Terry, whose BBC hits ‘Life Of A Mountain: Blencathra’ and ‘Life Of A Mountain: Scafell Pike’ are well-known across the UK and beyond, and in 2017 he turned his attention to creating a portrait of Britain’s most successful mountaineer and proud Yorkshireman Alan Hinkes. Hinkes is one of just a handful of people worldwide to have climbed all of the world’s highest mountains, the 8000-metre peaks.

One of the UK’s top outdoor photographer/filmmakers, Terry has crafted a great film that looks at Alan’s achievements and life story, set amidst an engaging global travelogue which takes in his beloved Yorkshire and captures the geography and cultures of Kathmandu and Norway along the way.

Hinkes seems pretty chuffed with it:

“I’m really flattered to be the subject of this fantastic film and to be able to work with such a talented filmmaker like Terry. We really enjoyed making the film together and its been brilliantly received at advance screenings since its UK premiere last October”
