short documentary, “The Rope” will be screened at the Al Jazeera Balkans Documentary Film Festival
In “The Rope,” former mountaineering partners, who were conquering European and world peaks until the end of the ‘80s, Muhamed Gafi? (70) and Željko Rudan (63), are preparing for what could be their toughest climb ever. Above them is the top of the Babin zub, the mountain they had climbed so many times. But beneath them is the burden of the past — war and suffering. Roped together, Muhamed and Željko talk about war and confidence, while climbing.
