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.
