In January 2015, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson celebrated one of the heaviest multi-pitch routes in the world: The Dawn Wall in the Yosemite Valley. The movie about the gripping story behind the historic ascent is on Thursday, 22. November 2018, to see in the cities of Zurich, Bern, Basel, Lucerne, Geneva and Lausanne.

A film crew accompanied Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson at every step through the wall and documented its historical inspection. Now, three years later, the project is being brought back to life. The film The dawn wall not only documents the successful ascent, but also Caldwell's seven-year obsession with the route and the paths that ultimately led him to the goal.
