Description

Birdman of the Karakorum and award winner at the 2009 St Hilaire Film Festival.

On the razor sharp cutting edge of adventure paragliding, The Birdman of the Karakoram takes you from armchair to the most extreme flying location on earth, when high altitude paragliding pioneer John Silvester takes Alun Hughes on the tandem flight to end all tandem flights.
 
Supported by nothing more than a ten kilo nylon wing and John’s uncanny paragliding skills, the pair commit themselves deep into a remote and hypoxic world of snow, ice and previously unexplored terrain, where flying to survive becomes the name of the game.
 
The Birdman of the Karakorum demolishes any ideas you may have had about paragliding being about serenely floating around the sky.
 
(65mins) DVD in English, French, German, Spanish & Italian
