2014 Film Lineup

THURSDAY PLAYLIST


CASCADA

Paddler and cinematographer alike explore a world beyond the unexpected ... and find perfection.



NOT BAD (special edit)

Seven brave riders set out from the four corners of the globe for thirty days of outrageous fun and bicycle tomfoolery in New Zealand.

I AM RED

A visual poem of the Colorado River delivers a simple yet powerful message.

HEAVENS GATE

A group of wingsuit pilots gather at Tianmen Mountain in China, the birthplace of the dream of human flight, to attempt an intimidating feat – flying through the sacred site known as Heaven’s Gate, an archway carved out of the mountain. As Jeb Corliss drops from a helicopter and soars toward the opening, nearly a half-billion people hold their breath.

THE BURN

Fire frees new lines for skiers, who revel in the newly charred forest.

THE LAST GREAT CLIMB

Are rock stars Leo Houlding, Sean “Stanley” Leary, and Jason Pickles up to their old tricks again? Maybe so, but they’ve brought along a few new friends and hopes of a bold new line on a remote spire in Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. They’re going big again – the majestic unclimbed Ulvetanna Peak is their goal this time. But they’re in the middle of nowhere, miserably cold, a bit delirious. Hopefully it’s nothing a little adrenaline can’t cure.

THE LAST ICE MERCHANT

When Baltazar Ushca dies, the long - lived tradition of harvesting glacial ice from the tallest mountain in Ecuador will die with him. Every action is tenderly portrayed as Baltazar steadfastly wraps his bounty in hay and loads it on his donkey for delivery to his loyal customers.

SUFFERFEST

Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright embark on a wholly human-powered adventure to link all of California’s 14,000 foot peaks. Utterly new to biking, the quirky yet endearing duo push themselves to their absolute limits in pursuit of success.

VALHALLA (short clip) *Contains Nudity

From naked chairlift riding to cliff airs wearing nothing more than an avalanche beacon and a smile, Valhalla’s naked snow segment sparks laughter from skiers and non-skiers alike. 

 



 

 

FRIDAY PLAYLIST


INTO THE MIND (Special edit)

Amazing skiing, stunning imagery, and fabulous music are showcased in this high-energy excerpt from the feature film.



FLOW: THE ELEMENTS OF FREERIDE

Follow Geophysicist Rex Flake on a high-adrenaline mountain bike ride through the Cascade Mountains as he identifies the flora, fauna, and geology of this cinematic region. Uniquely edited without the typical hard core soundtrack, Flow uses creative graphics and sound design to bring the viewer uncomfortably close to the action.

SENSORY OVERLOAD

Blind kayaker Erik Weihenmayer turns whitewater into a new form of braille.

NORTH OF THE SUN

Tucked between the cold Atlantic Ocean and the rocky slopes of a remote, arctic island, two young Norwegian adventurers discover their own private playground. They build themselves a cabin out of flotsam while clearing the beach of debris, then spend the long winter skiing and surfing in the haunting low light.

SPLIT OF A SECOND

99.9% of time is spent in preparation for living a few moments of joy. The other .1% is to only be here now, and step off that cliff!

KEEPER OF THE MOUNTAINS (special edit)

Elizabeth Hawley bucked the conventions of her time by settling alone in Kathmandu in 1960, where she began chronicling Himalayan expeditions for The Himalayan Database. Even as she turns 90, she continues to update these records with rigorous accuracy and dedication.

RETURN TO THE TEPUIS

A wee pebble toad living in the crevices of the tepuis of South America is the missing link to understanding the age of the species as well as the age of the tepuis themselves.

THE QUESTIONS WE ASK

Bruce Kirkby crosses the Pacific from Vancouver to Victoria on a stand-up paddleboard, and ponders what adventure means to him.

SPICE GIRL (special edit)

The UK climbing scene is known for its strict traditional ethic, yielding super sketchy, dangerous routes, and a competitive machismo. It’s the last place you’d expect to find a nice little blond girl putting all the lads to shame, but Hazel Findlay is doing just that. The first woman to climb the British grade of E9, Hazel is a connoisseur of loose rock, dodgy gear, and big runouts.

35

35 routes in one day to celebrate 35 years of life? Why not? Take the birthday challenge!

VALHALLA (short clip) *Contains Nudity

From naked chairlift riding to cliff airs wearing nothing more than an avalanche beacon and a smile, Valhalla’s naked snow segment sparks laughter from skiers and non-skiers alike.
