THE ARIO DREAM -The Quest for Europe’s Deepest Cave
Renowned filmmaker Paul Diffley has brought his technical skills to the caving world, with his new film The Ario Dream. The film profiles the exploration of the deep caves of Ario in the Picos de Europa mountains, Northern Spain. The film follows the latest 2016/17 expeditions as they try to make the last few connections that could result in the deepest cave system in Europe.
This is a gripping account of ‘expedition-style’ cave exploration involving underground camps and complex logistics, and where the penalties for unforeseen emergencies or problems are severe. At the apex of the operation are the cave divers, pushing into the unknown in deep sumps where rescue is not an option. The tension, as each diver disappears into the blackness, is genuine…
World premiere 18th Nov 2017 at the Kendal Mountain Festival.
Tickets are available for a special screening of the film at the Kendal Mountain Festival to raise money for Cave Rescue. The film will be introduced by the filmmaker, Paul Diffley, and the they will be a Q&A with the cavers.
Sunday 19th Nov 0930 - 1100, Book you place here .
