New Dot to screen towering adventure film tomorrow

* A scene from the film Mountain to be shown by New Dot tomorrow evening.

This Friday's screening at New Dot Cinema features a breath-taking documentary called Mountain which so far has only had a limited release across the UK.

The evening is sponsored by Llangollen-based outdoor equipment specialists, ProAdventure and also features some  atmospheric short films to whet the appetite.

New Dot volunteer Jen Sandiford says: 'We're hoping this film will really resonate with people around the Llangollen area. There's a lot of  interest in outdoor adventure locally and of course some superb hills  and mountains to explore.

"We're really excited that ProAdventure is sponsoring us this month. They're a great independent store that are really involved in the community.

'Mountain was initially suggested by a member of the public and we love being able to include community requests in our monthly programme.'

The film takes its audience to some of the world's most spectacular scenery from Tibet to Australia and Alaska to Norway.

Using drones, Go-Pros and helicopters, director Jennifer Peedom follows mountaineers, ice
climbers, free soloists, heliskiers, snowboarders, wingsuiters and parachuting mountain bikers.

The narration, by Willem Dafoe, is based on the mountaineer Robert Macfarlane's lyrical memoir 'Mountains of the Mind'.

This, combined with a sweeping score from the Australia Chamber Orchestra makes for one majestic movie experience.

If you're interested in climbing and outdoor exploration, don't miss the chance to see this stunning film on the big screen.

The event takes place tomorrow (Friday) at Llangollen Town Hall on Castle Street LL20 8NU.

Mountain is rated PG. More information can be found on Facebook, Twitter and at
