Check out this interview with famed mountaineer and author Joe Simpson of Touching The Void fame. It was filmed recently at the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival which has built itself quite the impressive reputation in recent years.
While he doesn’t talk directly about his mountaineering exploits, he does talk about selling the writes to his book to Hollywood and the process he went through to finally bring Touching The Void to the big screen. Very interesting stuff. Also, the page notes that this is “Part 1” of the Simpson interview, so hopefully there will be more to come.
