Friday, January 19

Where the Wild Things Play

There’s an ongoing discussion of why there aren’t more females in the adventure industry; whether it’s in big mountain skiing, climbing, or whitewater kayaking. Well, it’s about time we found out Where the Wild Things Play! (G)

Sky Migrations

Each fall our skies fill with the wings of migrating raptors, a migration that relies on two hemispheres worth of wild and healthy ecosystems. Join ecologist and filmmaker, Charles Post, as he shines a light on the network of backcountry scientists and sentinels at the front lines of raptor conservation. (PG - coarse language)

Into Twin Galaxies - A Greenland Epic

Three National Geographic “Adventurers of the Year” embark on an insane kayaking mission in Greenland. With kite skis they tow their white water kayaks over 1000 km of the Greenland Ice Cap to reach the most northern river ever paddled. (PG - coarse language)

INTERMISSION

La Casita Wip

Two girls from Ecuador have a dream of building their own dirt jumping track in their backyard. So they get to work. (G)

The Frozen Road

Ben Page sought an adventure of perfect solitude in the Canadian Arctic. Yet the harsh truths of traveling in such a formidable environment were a long way from the romanticisms of a Jack London book. (G)

Ascend

As a young adult, Jon Wilson lost his leg to cancer. Mountain biking has played a critical role in helping him sink his teeth back into life. (G)

Above the Sea

Chris Sharma takes it to the next level while deep-water soloing on the island of Mallorca. (G)

Imagination: Tom Wallisch

Have you ever been that little kid sitting in the back seat of your parents’ car, wishing you were somewhere else? So you imagine a skier on the side of the road, your fingers commanding back flips and roof drops, improbable rail slides and huge airs. Well, what if your imagination came to life? (G)

Intersection: Micayla Gatto

Mountain biker Micayla Gatto takes the viewer into her world as a painter and as an athlete, riding through beautifully created masterpieces where colors come to life and reality blends with art. (G)

2.5 Million

American skier Aaron Rice sets out to ski 2.5 million, human-powered, vertical feet in the backcountry and set a new world record. (G)

Johanna 

For freediver Johanna Nordblad diving under the ice provides a surreal, calming environment that helps heal her injuries. (G)

The Last Honey Hunter

Maule Dhan Rai is the last man in the remote Nepal village of Saadi who's been visited in a dream by a wrathful forest spirit called Rongkemi. If no one else in the village has the dream, a generations-old tradition may die. (PG - coarse language)

INTERMISSION

WHY

Iceland. A cold, rugged and forbidding landscape where powerful rivers plunge through bedrock gorges, over massive waterfalls toward the sea. A crew of French kayakers travel here to ask the question, “Why? Why do we do this?” (PG - nudity)

Tarfala

Far north of the Arctic Circle, next to Sweden's highest mountain, one old man has chosen to spend his life as the caretaker of a lonely alpine hut. Retreating from obligations and everyday routines into the cold arctic winter storms, he's set on finding peace of mind with the life he has lived and those he has chosen to leave behind. (PG - Coarse language)

Safety Third

Brad Gobright is beyond bold. From his runout and poorly protected trad climbs to his unimaginable free solos, watch as Gobright recovers from a backbreaking fall and attempts some of the hardest ascents of his career. (PG - Coarse language and violence)

Ice Call - Backyards Project - Sam Favret 

Try to keep up to freerider Sam Favret as he gives us a new perspective of the mythical Mer de Glace, at the heart of Mont-Blanc. (G)

Surf the Line

For The Flying Frenchies, thinking out of the box isn’t a choice – it’s a way of life. (G)

My Irnik

Originally from Montreal, Conor falls in love with the northern way of life, and a woman, in the Canadian Arctic. Now the young father helps to pass on the native traditions and ancestral culture to his son, as he learns them himself. (G)

Kilian

Kilian Jornet is considered the greatest mountain runner ever. But he doesn’t consider himself a runner. Join Kilian in his new backyard in Norway as he attempts to ski and run the Seven Summits of Romsdalen in a single day, a 77-km route with 9,000 meters of elevation gain. (G)

DugOut

Ben and James decide to travel to the Ecuadorian Amazon, live with an indigenous community, learn from them how to build a canoe from scratch, then take that canoe on a journey … What could go wrong? (PG - coarse language, nudity)

INTERMISSION

DreamRide 2

Poetic, artistic and inspiring, ride along as we traverse volcanic fields, explore hidden lava caves, and race down rivers of ice. (G)

Edges

At the ripe old age of 90, Yvonne Dowlen has been ice skating for as long as she can remember. Edges is a celebration of a life lived well. (G)

Dreamwalkers: The Faroes Project

Four friends set out on an adventure to be the first to highline in one of the most unlikely of places: the Faroe Islands. (G)

Pedal

Forty-three countries down, Hera van Willick rides her bicycle across continents, fully self-supported, sharing her journey and what she has learned along the way. (G)

Stumped

Maureen Beck has never let the fact that she is missing her lower left arm hold her back from climbing. She doesn’t want to be considered a good one-armed climber, or a good female climber … she just wants to be a plain good climber. (PG-13 - coarse language & violence)
