I’m pulling out all the old goodies!
Here is another documentary that was done about me and my memory/climbing journey over the past few years (continuing after the last documentary I posted: https://youtu.be/-khNDmCvw0g).
Filming started in 2012 and finished at the end of 2013. It covers my first World Memory Championships competition as well as my 2013 loss and failed Everest attempt. An interesting time in my life, to be sure…
Ana Overgaard was the director, cinematographer, and editor, and is a fantastic up and coming filmmaker (give her some love on her Vimeo channel: https://vimeo.com/user10855292).
‘Ace of Diamonds’ illustrates the fascinating life of Nelson Dellis, the US National Memory Champion, and his philanthropic efforts towards Alzheimer’s research through his mountain climbing group, Climbing for Memory.
