I went over to the San Sebastien Film Festival in late-September to watch the premiere of On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter and Greasy Hands Preachers. These two motorcycle films were part of the Savage Cinema section of the Spanish festival: 'a section dedicated to adventure and action sports films'.
While I was there I also managed to see this great climbing film - Valley Uprising. Neither myself or Mrs I, who accompanied me, know a thing about climbing and it didn't matter, this is superb. It's a story of the development of climbing, told by different generations who concentrated on climbing one small area of Yosemite National Park.
While we're covering film, Sideburn has a feature on the making of the original On Any Sunday, in which we interviewed Bruce Brown, Mert Lawwill, Malcolm Smith and super fan, Eric Bostrom. It's in Sideburn 10. G
