Lapporten Skyline

Sweden, Feature Documentary, 2022, 48 min

Winner at the Banff and Kendall Mountain Film Festivals

During the summer of 2021, a group of friends heads north on a unique adventure. They are some of the best highliners in the world, heading for the iconic Lapporten, just outside Abisko in northern Sweden. There, they will put up a 2 kilometers long highline 600 meters above ground and then walk over. What could go wrong? If they succeed it will be a new world record. If they fail it will be a memory for life. Subtitled.
