Alan Hinkes: the movie

British mountaineering legend to feature in a film about his life.

On July 16th filmmaker Terry Abraham, best known for his Life of a Mountain series of cinematic documentaries on Scafell Pike and Blencathra, revealed the subject of his next big movie.

Starting this summer, Terry will begin work on a biopic of the legendary mountaineer Alan Hinkes. Due for release in the latter half of next year, the 55-minute film will follow Alan’s story and chronicle his high-altitude achievements, including being the first Brit to summit all of the World’s peaks over 8000m.

"I've been waiting for the right time
to do Alan's life justice"

“It's been on the cards for quite some time” Terry admitted when announcing the exciting new project. “I was just waiting for the right time to execute the vision I have in mind to do Alan's life justice. The documentary will be filmed UK wide and abroad and should prove entertaining, inspiring and insightful into what makes Alan tick and how his life has panned out.”

The Alan Hinkes film will premiere on IMAX at the Rheged Centre in Penrith on Saturday 14th October 2017, with tickets going on sale in September.
