A breathtaking documentary telling the inspirational tale of blind climber Jesse Dufton's ascent of the Old Man Of Hoy in Orkney.
Jesse was born with a rare genetic disorder that breaks down the retinas' cells, and his sight has deteriorated to now being just light perception. As a lifelong climber he flies in the face of adversity and, with his sight guide and fiancée Molly, sets out on a fantastic challenge – attempting to be the first blind person to lead a climb up the iconic Old Man of Hoy sea stack.
PLUS SHORT FILM: The Big Deal (12 mins), an action-packed profile of Frances Bensley, one of the UK’s strongest female boulderers on rock.
Running time: 1h41, including ads, trailers and short film.
Please be aware that no-one under the age of 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. Unaccompanied children may be required to show photographic I.D. (e.g. a Young Scot card) to gain entry to the cinema.
When booking tickets, please be aware the box office system is set up to automatically block off seats around each booking, keeping the appropriate distance between customers. If you're booking for a group, please make sure all the people in that group are in the same bubble, and if you want to see a film with someone from your bubble, you'll need to book your tickets at the same time if you want to sit together. Face coverings must be worn in the cinema unless you're eating or drinking, and we're requesting that customers take their own rubbish with them at the end of the film, and put it in the bins provided. Cinemas will be thoroughly cleaned between each screening, and there is hand sanitiser available throughout the building.
