‘Brave New Wild’ Asks Legendary Adventurers What Lures them to Climb Rocks

Why do people rock climb? It is a highly dangerous and difficult sport—and most definitely a non-conventional life pursuit. Independent filmmaker Oakley Anderson-Moore sets out to answer this question in her debut feature documentary, “Brave New Wild,” which is in the midst of a national theatrical tour and was recently made available for viewing on DVD as well as on iTunes and other digital platforms. Anderson-Moore filmed a series of interviews of climbers from the early days of the climbing revolution. These adventurers broke social norms in post-World War II America to live nomadic lives in their quest to conquer the Tetons, outside Yellowstone National Park, and the great rock walls, such as Half Dome and El Capitan in Yosemite Valley.

‘Will You See the Players Well Bestowed?’

Shakespeare_300.jpg

In the Elizabethan era, the play was indeed the thing, and even so vaunted a playwright as Shakespeare was far from a widely-known quantity. The playwright’s death on April 23, 1616, was marked by precious few remembrances.
