Bringing to life Joe Simpsons book of the same name TOUCHING THE VOID details the near-death experience he endured during a 1985 attempt to climb the only mountain in the Peruvian Andes that had not been scaled--the 21 000-foot Siula Grande. With his partner Simon Yates Simpson successfully reached the peak after a three-day climb. During the descent however he fell and shattered several bones in his right leg. Yates attempted to lower Simpson down the mountain 300 feet at a time but the process was slow and painful for both men. With no food or water they would both surely die--which left Yates with a painful choice to make--cutting Simpson loose thus ensuring at least his own survival. This was only the beginning of Simpsons mind-boggling odyssey. BR Director Kevin McDonald (ONE DAY IN SEPTEMBER) tells this compelling story by combining talking-head interviews with Simpson and Yates and stunningly photographed narrative footage--in which Simpson and Yates ordeal is actually re-enacted on Siula Grande. McDonalds re-enactment footage is both engrossing and eye-popping and it could easily stand alone as its own one-of-a-kind adventure film. The interviews however add depth that make this a unique thrilling and emotional piece of cinema.
