Inspirés par une photo noir et blanc vieille de 75 ans du Denali -  anciennement dénommé mont McKinley - qui domine l'Amérique du Nord du  haut de ses 6190 mètres, trois alpinistes émérites se lancent dans une  aventure extraordinaire et nous montrent pourquoi l'Homme doit explorer  et vivre des expériences. Ils tentent l'ascension de la montagne via une  voie vertigineuse encore jamais empruntée et entraînent dans leur  sillage un spectateur fasciné. L'alpiniste Renan Ozturk a fait partie  des caméramen de MERU, célèbre film-documentaire réalisé par Jimmy Chin  et E. Chai Vasarhely de FREE SOLO. Il est également caméraman et  réalisateur des scènes en altitude pour SHERPA & MOUNTAIN.
Brad Washburn was the greatest aerial mountain photographer of all time.  Hanging out the open door of an airplane, he flew above unmapped  mountain ranges - capturing iconic images with which he could make maps,  pursue scientific inquiries, discover first ascents, and inspire  people. More than eighty years after Washburn first photographed Denali from the air, climbing buddies Renan Ozturk and Freddie Wilkinson look  at some of Washburn’s images and have this crazy idea: rather than go  up, their dream is to go sideways — across the range’s most forbidding  peaks, the Mooses Tooth massif. It’s a decidedly new school way to  explore the same landscape Washburn first discovered.As they pioneer the  route over the course of two expeditions, enduring freezing bivies, cut  ropes, and rockfall along the way, their desire to be the first to  complete the audacious line grows into an obsession. But friendships  begin to fray when Renan suffers a near fatal brain injury, forcing them  to decide what’s most important. When they rendezvous in the small town  of Talkeetna for yet another attempt, all bets are off.While the  climbing action unfolds, Washburn’s own incredible story comes to life  through stunning archivals and recreations.  As a young man he turned down Amelia Earhart’s offer to join her on her around the world flight,  then pulled off one of the gutsiest exploratory climbs in history - the epic first ascent of Mt. Lucania - but suffered his own fatal plane  crash which left two women dead. His superhero wife Barbara ultimately  redeemed him, and helped him map and explore the greatest landscapes on  Earth, and his relationship with Ansel Adams allowed him to transcend  his day-to-day job as Director of the Boston Museum of Science to become something he would never admit to being: an artist. Filmed over a period of five years, The Sanctity Of Space brings together visual elements of the highest order – from Washburn and Adams’s stunning large format black and white photographs to state-of-the-art helicopter cinematography to space photography – with an unforgettable story spanning generations. It’s both a white-knuckle adventure tale, and a  celebration of the spirit of exploration.
