Sanctity of Space
“The Sanctity of Space” follows climbing buddies Renan Ozturk, Freddie Wilkinson and Zack Smith as they retrace the steps of legendary mountaineer, explorer and photographer Bradford Washburn, who put up many of the first ascents in Alaska.
Inspired by Washburn’s photographs of Alaska’s Denali National Park in Alaska from 75 years ago, “The Sanctity of Space” weaves Washburn’s extraordinary story with the trio’s obsession to traverse the Mooses Tooth massif, which contains some of Alaska’s most forbidding peaks.
“The Sanctity of Space” is “both a white-knuckle adventure tale and an unforgettable look into why we explore, in the spirit of recent docs like ‘Free Solo’ and ‘Dawn Wall’” Visit Films said in a press statement.
