"Jugando a Escalar", short version.

"Jugando a Escalar" narra la historia de cinco jóvenes escaladores que luchan y disfrutan de cada día por superar sus metas sin dejar de ser niños que sueñan con jugar a escalar.

Tan solo tienen entre 11 y 14 años y forman parte de una cantera de deportistas que están despuntando a nivel internacional. Pero, además de sus cualidades innatas, cabe destacar que esta generación está consiguiendo estos resultados gracias a su esfuerzo, motivación y entrenamiento.

Un proyecto documental que se ha convirtió en una historia de superación, no sólo para los protagonistas, si no para todo aquel que formo parte de esta bonita historia y que compensó su falta de presupuesto con esfuerzo e ilusión por el trabajo bien hecho.

We want to explain what motivates these children between 11 and 14 years old to dedicate body and soul to training and sports events whilst combining their studies and the daily life of any normal child with the life of a top climber.

We was with our climbers in their daily life: studies, friends, hobbies, training and some of their most difficult climbs, using the most spectacular pictures combined with the more human side of this adventure.

"A film that will motivate younger and older people"
