In the mid-80′s two young climbers attempted to reach the summit of Siula Grande in Peru; a feat that had previously been attempted but never achieved. Simon and Joe set off to scale the mountain in one long push over several days. The peak is reached, however on the descent Joe fell and broke his leg. The two continue with Simon letting Joe out on a rope for 300 meters, then descending to join him and so on. When Joe goes out over an overhang with no way of climbing back up, Simon makes the decision to cut the rope. Joe falls into a crevasse and Simon, assuming him dead, continues back down. Joe however survives the fall. This is the story of how he got back down.
Stop by Midwest Mountaineering for a great free film and some free popcorn!

A yearlong project microanalyzing Carol Reed’s cinematic masterpiece The Third Man—in increments of 62 seconds each—the blog Still Dots caught the attention of audiences and critics worldwide. According to Indiewire, “What’s remarkable about projects like Still Dots… is the amount of variety, texture, and inclusiveness possible when the focus of a piece of writing, or any other work, is reduced by somewhat arbitrary constraints.” With the final installment #102, Matt Levine and Jeremy Meckler, interns in the Walker’s film/video department, wrap up the venture begun in December 2011. A free screening of the film is presented in celebration of the completion of this epic undertaking.
Ranked as the best British film of the 20th century by the British Film Institute in 1999, The Third Man blends decisive visual style, tremendous acting performances, and a complexly plotted screenplay—penned by Graham Greene—to produce a deceptively sweet cocktail of spies, lies, and murder in postwar Vienna. Notable for its on-location shooting, canted angles, and brilliant cinematography, it manages to make the city of Vienna a character as important as any of the actors. “Of all the movies that I have seen, this one most completely embodies the romance of going to the movies” (Roger Ebert). 1949, 35mm, 104 minutes.

The film is a comedy about a French postman who tries to get transferred from the south of France to the French Riviera, and instead gets banished to the far north of France – the sticks! Their food is different, their dialect sounds like a different language, and he decides he can’t even ask his family to join him there. The story unfolds comically as he begins to really like the north, but can’t admit it to his wife, who thinks he’s just being brave. It is a well-loved iconic film in France, and has been watched by more French than any film in their history! In French with English subtitles. 2008, 106m, Dany Boon, director.
