Introducing the hugely inspirational true story of love, survival, a pathological optimist, his indomitable spirit and a wheelchair, directed by Academy Award nominee, Greg Lowe.
Jeff Lowe’s Metanoia uses the Eiger as a backdrop for Jeff Lowe’s life story. For nine harrowing days in the winter of 1991, Jeff pieced together what Men’s Journal called an “unimaginable” route up the very center of the Eiger Norwand. This is the story behind a climb—an act of imagination—that has become legendary.
Jeff’s extraordinary first ascent – Metanoia – (noun: a transformative change of heart )-has never been repeated. Will the long awaited 2nd ascent happen this winter?
This film explores much more than the incredible life and climbs of this legendary alpinist. Discover what lies beneath Jeff’s high adventure lifestyle. See how years of climbing and living in the present moment, have prepared him to live with disabilities he could never have imagined.
We fully expect this film to become a landmark in the history of Mountain Film.
