Renan Ozturk is no stranger to high-altitude cinematography. He was up the ledge and behind the lens on acclaimed documentaries Sherpa and Oscar-winning Free Solo. Sanctity of Space, his first feature-length film as director, follows in their footsteps… or pitons, if you prefer.

Along with Freddie Wilkinson and co-director Zack Smith, Ozturk finds inspiration in the work of Brad Washburn, history’s greatest aerial photographer. Washburn’s feats – and photography – are legendary, but will this trio be able to forge their own legend through an ambitious dream to go sideways across the perilous Moose’s Tooth peaks?

Traversing fraying friendships and intense injuries, Sanctity of Space surveys the steep ascent to greatness.
