A GRAPPLE WITH GRAVITY: A Documentary About Fear

Author(s): John Cobb
Video Release Date: December 8, 2022
Video Source: YouTube

Two years ago, my best friend Kyle and I decided to make a film about overcoming the fear of life’s unknowns. As rock climbers, we are captivated by those who push their physical boundaries, but also their ability to manage fear. In the summer of 2022, Kyle and I traveled across the country to pick the brains of people who engage in situations that most people find terrifying. The result was a newfound understanding of fear and its purpose in our lives. We hope that this documentary encourages you to confront your fears and conquer your unknowns. Thank you for your support on this ambitious project!
