BRAVE NEW WILD is an offbeat chronicle of America’s Golden Age of rock climbing before and after the controversial ascent of the Dawn Wall in 1970. Some forty years later, a daughter stumbles upon her father's old hi8 tapes, and sets out to answer the question of why climb when there's nothing to gain -- and everything to lose. Wry humor and an eclectic original soundtrack punctuate the delinquent antics of the Vulgarians in the ‘Gunks, the larger-than-life rivalry of Yosemite’s rock gods, and the fruit tramping, freight train hopping hobodom of her dad’s climbing life, making this a quintessential outdoor movie to those who long for adventure.
