Film Information - To the Limit

Description

Featuring spectacular “you are there” footage of three champion athletes, the film celebrates our understanding of the human body in performance.  Famed American rock climber Tony Yaniro, champion ski racer Maria Walliser and Bolshoi Ballet prima ballerina Nina Ananiashvili demonstrate the body’s potential as they strive for perfection.

Staggeringly beautiful scenes from inside the body reveal its miraculous ability to adapt to the demands of intense physical action.  See inner body shots of tissues and muscles in action and fly through the arteries and chambers of the heart to experience a blood cell’s view.  The film is the first of its kind to use inner body (endoscopic) photography on the giant screen.
