Windfall Films, part of the Argonon Group is in production on feature documentary The Wall – Climb for Gold, the story of four elite female climbers, which has been made with the support of Adidas.
The announcement marks the first release of an ongoing slate of films and content offerings from LA-based Premiere Digital, who will distribute The Wall – Climb for Gold, on digital platforms in early 2022.
The film is directed by Nick Hardie (Formula 1: Drive to Survive), features a score by multi-award winning composer Nainita Desai (The Reason I Jump, For Sama) and is edited by Emily West.
The Wall – Climb for Gold (see the trailer here )follows the climbers over a two-year period as they battle to make it through the qualifying events to get to Tokyo for the first ever Olympic climbing competition. The journey includes a gruelling season of competition and training and the Covid-19 pandemic postponing the Olympics.
The four elite climbers are Brooke Raboutou (USA), Janja Garnbret (Slovenia), Miho Nonaka (Japan), Shauna Coxsey (Great Britain).
Garnbret was a child phenomenon and holds the most world titles under her belt in the sport. She is heralded the greatest competition climber of all time and the overwhelming favourite for the Olympic title.
Raboutou, 20, is one of the youngest competitors at the Games and must balance training and being a student at UC-San Diego. Both Raboutou’s mother and father are legends of the sport, winning numerous World Cup titles in the 1990s and she hopes to continue the family success.
Nonaka, the 2018 Bouldering World Cup champion, is a Tokyo native and must overcome the extra pressure of representing her country in her home city.
Coxsey is one of the most successful British climbers in history, with Bouldering World Cup titles in 2016 and 2017. Coxsey has fought to overcome serious injury.
The Wall – Climb for Gold was created by Windfall Adventures Ltd, a subsidiary of Windfall Films. Dan Kendall is Executive Producer for Windfall Films.
Windfall was supported by adidas in the making of the film but throughout retained complete independence and editorial control.
Steve Rosenberg, Chief Commercial Officer, Premiere Digital said: “It is absolutely fitting that the first film we are distributing as part of our new distribution business is a remarkable story about dedicated, passionate and goal-oriented female athletes who overcome obstacles and challenges abound to reach new heights. We are truly excited to bring this incredibly riveting and inspirational documentary to audiences worldwide and look forward to a prosperous future working with filmmakers and content producers to have their stories shared.”
The exact release date and platforms will be announced in the near future.
