Last Thoughts On The Dirtbag

Last Thoughts On The Dirtbag

5 minutes, United States, 2016



How do you show tribute to something that has given you everything? “Last Thoughts On The Dirtbag” is a poetic and visceral journey through the heart of a climber, in Indian Creek, the crack climbing Mecca of the world.

With footage of some of the most classic climbs in The Creek, married with a rich and reflective poem, this film portrays the climber as a searcher, someone who is restless with the average American sedentary lifestyle, and desires for more.

“Last Thoughts On The Dirtbag” is a modern film, influenced by the prose of the beatniks as well as the style of the hip-hop generation, and the end result is a fresh perspective on the life of a dirtbag climber.
