NOT SO FAR, a film/documentary featuring our great mountaineering hero Hervé Barmasse, won the Award for the Best Mountaineering Film in Domzale, Slovenia


From the jury:

“This documentary is a tribute to classical European alpinism. It does not,
however, focus on history; instead it follows the author’s trilogy of ascents in
the Alps. From his home valley of Aosta, Hervé Barmasse climbed three
famous Alpine peaks – Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa and Monte Cervinia
(Matterhorn). The three climbs were made in the style of his famous ancestors
who broke new ground in these mountains – with first ascents and a healthy
dose of adventure.”
