Our second documentary for EpicTV, Iano depicts the unlikely and difficult relationship between Adventure Photographer Zeemon Erhardt and Rock climber Sebastian Costa. Their main objective was to establish a new multi-pitch route along the sea cliff's of Mondello, Sicily. However after a few short days of trial and error, doubts begin to blossom as both climbers turn against each other, attempting difficult tasks amongst the Mediterranean heat and each others discontent. This is a story about the lesser known risks of climbing, trust and impulse.
