Refusing to give into fear

Highlining 2800m in winter.’Hayley’- 90 seconds about fear. (Dir. Stian Smestad Music by Nils Frahm) from Stian Smestad on Vimeo.

In 90 Seconds About Fear, Norwegian film director Stian Smestad dazzles us with stunning views of athlete Hayley Ashburn balancing in mid-air between two mountaintops in the Italian Alps. In freezing cold temperatures, Hayley walks a 52-meter highline between the Vajolet rock towers. As she does so, she recites quotes about fear from Frank Herbert’s novel, Dune. She inspires us to conquer our own fears as she faces hers and “permits fear to pass over and through” her.
