Seele Aus Stein (“Soul of Stone”), an official selection at Telluride Moutainfilm 2015, is a short film from Taylor Zann and Rainier Films that profiles iconic barefoot climber Bernd Arnold. In the film, Arnold, who has more than 980 first ascents in his 67 years, reflects on overcoming fear and the joy of “managing to overstep your limits” in climbing.
