WayPoint Namibia: Adventure and Culture in Africa

A friend of mine, Majka, has been pursuing her passions by integrating writing and climbing for many years.  Her latest project evolved out of this synergy into video.  Her 30 minute documentary was recently released and has been well received at numerous film festivals and showings.

 

The use of multiple media formats and the stunning scenery make this a climbing video you can watch time after time and notice details missed earlier.  Simply put how many of us will wander around Namibia in our life travels?  This film leaves me feeling as if I have already been there.  Perhaps I should make that a reality?

 

In May 2009, a small team of rock climbers departed for Namibia with two goals: to find a way up an unexplored face, and to find a way into a deeper understanding of southern Africa.  At the heart of their trip lies the question, can adventure and culture combine to create understanding?  “WayPoint Namibia” is the story of their journey.

More information and a schedule of showings can be found here.

    You know, there is a Namibian Multi-day Stage Race…. it's part of the 4 Deserts Series.
    Besides the usual risks of dehydration, fatigue, blisters, and DNF… there's also a chance of venomous snake bite, heat stroke and/or lion attack.
    Hmmm… something to dream about in the future…
