After twenty years of international competitions, the three-time Ice Climbing World Champion Angelika Rainer is at a crossroads in her career. My Upside Down World, the first biopic documentary about the Italian climber’s personal and professional life, will follow Angelika’s path to self-discovery, as the first woman in her family to be fully in charge of her freedom and destiny. Just a few decades ago going to university or hiking, for example, were reserved for men only, as her grandmother and mother testify. Angelika, in contrast, grew up with the belief of being able to accomplish her dreams, challenging the laws of gravity on the walls of her upside down world. Now, however, Angelika feels that she has reached a turning point in her career, having won everything she could win. Together with Marco, her partner and coach, she will train constantly for one of the most difficult hiking routes anyone could attempt: the Ironman. This will be a journey of self-discovery during which Angelika will meet other women from countries such as Iceland, Greece and Switzerland. She will reflect on what it means today to be a free woman while facing new personal and professional challenges.
