In the year of tragedy, he reclaimed his soul.
A Life Ascending chronicles the life of acclaimed ski
mountaineer and mountain guide Ruedi Beglinger. Living
with his family on a remote glacier in the Selkirk
Mountains of British Columbia, Beglinger has built a
reputation as one of the top mountaineering guides in
the world. When a tragic avalanche kills seven people
under Ruedi's watch, it has him questioning his
deep-seated love for the extreme life he's chosen for
himself and his family.
The film follows his family's unique life in the
mountains and documents 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.
