Brit Rock Film Tour World Premiere

The Brit Rock Film Tour 2019 World Premiere is in Sheffield! With introductions by the filmmakers and climbers, gear giveaways, and a chance to meet the rock stars in a Q&A, it's going to be an unmissable evening.

This will be the first chance to see the much-anticipated Climbing Blind - the incredible story of the first blind ascent of The Old Man of Hoy. The Brit Rock Film Tour has all the best new climbing films from the UK’s top adventure filmmakers, featuring some of the country’s most popular climbers. The 2019 tour delivers a stunning line-up of compelling stories from the vertical world in its strongest program to date.

Main Feature - Climbing Blind - Produced and directed by Alastair Lee in association with Montane.

Jesse Dufton was born with 20% central vision. At four years of age Jesse was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa: a rare genetic disease that breaks down the retinas’ cells. At aged 20 Jesse could no longer read, by the time he was 30 his vision was reduced to just light perception with around 1 or 2 % field of view. As a life long climber, Jesse flies in the face of adversity training for world cup events and leading traditional rock climbs with his sight guide and fiancee Molly. As his sight degenerates his climbing continues to make remarkable progress. Despite his devastating condition Jesse only takes on bigger challenges by attempting to be the first blind person to make a ‘non-sight’ lead of the iconic Old Man of Hoy sea stack in Scotland.
