Product Description

A Life Ascending chronicles the life of acclaimed mountaineer Ruedi Beglinger. Living with his wife and two young daughters on a remote glacier in the vast mountains of British Columbia, Beglinger has built a reputation as one of the top ski mountaineering guides in the world. The film follows his family s unique life off the grid and their journey in the years following a devastating avalanche that killed seven people. Documenting the sublime beauty and ever-present risk of a life lived on the edge, the film ultimately explores the power of nature as both an unforgiving host and profound teacher.

The footage is beautiful and the story told well. Very interesting to see how others choose to live in the world. Despite the sadness of those lost, it still makes you want to go outside and enjoy nature. Highly recommend watching this.

An amazing story, told beautifully. An affirmation of life and one man's relationship with his extraordinary family and the mountain they call home. I was moved by this film.

Visually, this movie is stunning - the cinematography is excellent and really captures the mountains and glaciers in all their grandeur. But this documentary is first and foremost about its human subjects. The film follows mountaineer Ruedi Beglinger and his family in the wake of a catastrophic avalanche. The imposing and awe-inspiring scenery never detracts from the intimacy with which the family life of the Beglingers is portrayed. It is the unique life of the Beglinger family that makes this documentary such a memorable exploration of the often-tumultuous relationship between people and the environment.
