Leash Up the Dragon | Book Your Tickets

Follow the adventures of Tim Slab and his crew of mischief-makers as he attempts to walk the first highline ever rigged in the Drakensberg.

Just a few weeks after the premiere Vertical South Film Festival, we’re treated to another cinematic celebration of mountainous daring with Leash Up the Dragon.

Produced by The Reel Thing, this local story follows Tim Slab – co-founder of Friends and Allies – on his endeavour to rig and walk the first highline ever established in the Drakensberg. Accompanied by Wesley Antonites, Dwayne Janse van Rensberg, and Ruan Kotze (the man behind the lens); Tim battled through the worst the Dragon could throw at him and lived to tell the tale. The question is, did he send?

Screenings are coming soon to Johannesburg and Cape Town, brought to you by Bloc 11 and Friends and Allies (with the latter including drinks and bites from The Spark Café). Grab your tickets on Quicket and buckle your hypothetical seatbelts – it’s about to get spicy.
