In 2011 Petzl gathered over 600 climbers from all over the world to bring to China to climb the Great Arch of Getu He located in the Guizhou province. This film was put together by Baraka Films and tells its story unlike a traditional narrative. The film follows the beat of music and sounds gathered by hundreds of NAT sound mics placed all over the arch, and China, itself. The combination of editing and the flow of the music helps tell the amazing story of not only the climbers who braved the arch but of the nearby farming village and the arch’s significance to its people.
