Documentary/ self promotion piece of famous male climber, so not sure if counts since not true fiction. The males primarily talk their sport and goals, and the one female is the girlfriend who is positioned as the pretty obstacle to sportsman's ultimate climb. Also are mothers in movie, but clearly seen strictly as supporting roles of the men, except main male climber almost resentfully shares his mother's insistence on excellence from him.

Marc disagreed with the rating and said:
Sanni, Dierdre, and Clair are shown in the movie. Chai is the director. Sanni talks to Clair and Chai during the ground scenes (Chai is behind the camera, doing the shooting).
They talk about Alex and the effect on Sanni of a recent climber death before Alex's climb. 2 of 3 passed.

I agree, he starts out filming saying he doesn't have a girlfriend, then on saying how he keeps getting hurt because of her (twice in a row), it was really sad. I had to stop watching it, which was sad since I was super excited to watch it. I don't know he just seemed resentful over the relationship through the documentary to the point i had to stop.
