Gorropu is a film portrait of Aleksandra Taistra, a passionate rock climber with a unique focus and determination, who realized her multi-season project Hotel Supramonte in October 2019. A project of this sort requires a commitment level that most would call unattainable and Aleksandra battled tough weather conditions and self-doubt, often without a regular climbing partner, on her journey to complete the route. The film describes both the talents of Aleksandra and the emotional and mental side that underly a project of such ambition. Through the awe inspiring landscapes of Gorropu and other stunning Sarda landscapes, the film illustrates how Aleksandra has made climbing one of her raison d’être and how with perseverance and self belief a seemingly unattainable goal can become a stepping stone towards understanding oneself.
