Best Newcomer Short (2014)
Lines of Flight
Sal Brown & Martin Wood
United Kingdom

About the Film
Insightful with a little frisson of fear, Lines of Flight invokes the connection between industrial cities and the upland moors of the northern English Pennines by counterpoising the confines of modern life, be they social, psychological, or physical, with the captivating experience of free solo rock climbing. With a focus on the adventure and sheer joy of escaping the form-imposing abstractions of economic, social, and organisational constraint in some of the most beautiful parts of Britain, Lines of Flight appeals to both climbing and non-climbing audiences.
