Film Session(s)

34 minutes, Belgium, 2017



19 days on a 1200-meter-high vertical wall—that's what it took for a trio of Belgian climbers (Sean Villanueva O'Driscoll, Nicolas Favresse and Siebe Vanhee) to complete the first free ascent of “El Regalo de Mwono” on Torres del Paine, Patagonia, although they had planned for a maximum of 15 days autonomy. Back home, the youngster of the team, Siebe Vanhee, asked filmmaker Guillaume Lion to edit the footage of their ascent. The film took the form of an expedition diary, through which the young climber questions himself about the importance of ego in a team performance.
