Movie Details

Synopsis He thought he was going to shoot big-wall climbing in Yosemite but after an "epic failure with visas" plans changed. Ian Burton and fellow adventurer Andy Cornfield traveled to Nambia to have the biggest adventure one can have with almost no money, no guide book, and a mere few days preparation. The best film about some of the worst climbing and map reading you'll ever see. Driven to Despair is an adventure film documenting some of Namibia's most breathtaking scenery and combining beautiful cinematography with a well-timed narrative. It was distinguished as one of the most accomplished films of the year at Kendal Mountain Festival 2012. The journey starts and ends at the Spitzkoppe, a huge friable, granite outcrop surrounded by the seemingly endless Kalahari flanked by the Skeleton coast. The trio of adventurers explore as best they can, totally on there own with little idea of what's around the next corner.
