This is a follow up to Lim Il-jin’s climbing documentary Breathe 2 Climb. This time, Lim deals with the big wall. The camera joins the long journey with team leader KIM Hung-il and his team up India’s Thalay Sagar and Pakistan’s Trango Towers. This is the first film appearance of Kim Hung-il, the main protagonist of Alpinist. The film exposes the extremely difficult task of climbing by inserting a single security device in the big wall’s crack, slinging a rope through it and then jumaring. One can feel the warm gaze the filmmaker places on Kim Hung-il who has no choice but to climb mountains. (Billy CHOI)

Director

  • LIM Il-Jin

    Lim began climbing in 1988, when he entered Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, and learned photography in Japan. In 2008, he became the first Asian to be awarded at the Trento Film Festival with his documentary The Wall. Alpinist was selected as the Ulju Summit film at the first Ulju Mountain Film Festival, where it was screened. He was also a special director for the Korean film The Himalayas. Korea is pretty much barren when it comes to mountain films, but Lim climbed mountains with a camera for the last 30 years, coming to represent Korean mountain film directors. He was with Kim Chang-ho and the Korean Way Gurja Himal expedition that perished in 2018.
