Dirtbag: The Legend of Fred Beckey

Dir. Dave O’Leske | US 2018 | 96 min 

Hailed as one of the most prolific and influential climbers of all time, Fred Beckey has become a cult hero in the outdoor world. Dirtbag: The Legend of Fred Beckey explores in cinematic rapture the unmatched drive, superhuman achievements and enigmatic genius of this man who set the bar for what is possible in an uncompromised existence.

Animations of Fred’s personal journals, guidebooks and photographs combine with breathtaking aerial photography, motion graphics and rare archival footage to weave together the tapestry of this complex man’s life. More than 30 additional interviews with some of the world’s greatest climbers and authors – including Timothy Egan, Yvon Chouinard, Layton Kor, Conrad Anker, Royal Robbins and Reinhold Messner – attest to Fred Beckey’s legendary stature, environmental advocacy and iconic impact on the alpine world.

Tickets: £7.75 adult / £6 concession (inc. Poly Fund)
