UTA – The Climb for Kosovo
Dir: Jack Somerville, Jake Tupman. Kosovo 2021. 19 min 23 sec.
In 2017, 34-year-old Uta Ibrahimi became the first person from Kosovo to attempt to climb Mount Everest. Her goal was to inspire a new post-war generation in Kosovo to move on from the war and help create a better future for their country.
This film looks back on Uta’s inspirational life, charting her journey from young woman growing up in a conflict country, to the literal top of the world. On the surface, this is a film about mountain climbing; human versus the most unforgiving terrain on the planet, but underneath it is a film about recognition, about empowerment and about having the courage and the determination to step forward and keep going – for Uta and for Kosovo. Uta mirrors her homeland, its history, its sense of place in the world and its battle for recognition. Uta and Kosovo, in that respect, are one and the same.

«It’s almost scary how beautiful the unknown can be»
Arnstein Dale, an astrophotographer from the west coast of Norway, has for several years been fascinated by taking pictures of deep sky objects out in the great cosmos. Several light years away from what we can see with the naked eye, the unknown awaits to be captured.
Dir: Guillaume Pierrel. France 2021. 36 min.
In the 70’s, the pioneers explored the most breathtaking mountains in the Alps and Himalayas; 45 years later, the same passion has remained intact and alpine skiers decide to return on the trail of their ancestors.
Their goal is to reach an altitude of 8000m with their skis, to then descend by the French route of 1975, their heritage. Their Elders are like angels, their songs carrying them to the border of Afghanistan, then to the “wall of light” in Baltoro, on the outskirts of China.
Welcome to our great adventure of sharing and friendship! ô’parizad! is an invitation to travel, a hymn to the love of the mountain throughout the ages.
