KAKAPO CREST

A film about a first climbing ascent of the Tusk

in Fiordland, New Zealand. 

Tasmanian climbers Liz Oh and Rosie Hohnen are persuaded by filmmaker Olivia Page and a local kiwi stoat trapper, Ana Richards, to hike off-track deep into remote Fiordland, New Zealand, in search of a sabre-like peak. They surrender themselves to Ana's confidence in navigating them through terrain few have crossed, and in parts never traversed at all. They battle through vertical plants, gale force storms and dangerously loose rock, their wit and humour carrying them through. When they finally do reach the peak, unofficially named the Tusk, they quickly learn why it might be that only one other person, in the 1970s, has attempted to summit the towering peak. Kakapo Crest is Olivia Page’s first major film.
