FILMS TO BE SCREENED
1) THE COAST (2015 USA / Duration: 7 mins)
Directed by: Skip Armstrong
Just before he turned 30, Hayden Peters was forced into the terrifying position of confronting his own mortality because of a health issue. The experience came with a seismic shift in perspective, priorities and the way he approaches life. Trading city life for cold saltwater, Peters finds balance, inspiration and solace in the Oregon coastline — a place of crashing waves, elegant sea stacks and blunt, breathtaking, uncaring beauty. This short film by Skip Armstrong is a meditation on the power of the ocean and the lessons it can impart about what truly matters in life.
2) THE BALLOON HIGHLINE (2014 France / Duration: 5 mins)
Directed by: Sébastien Montaz-Rosset
Slacklining no longer seems to need the expanse of trees, crevasses or other earthbound objects — only some kind helium and a cool buzz.
3) STRANGE RUMBLINGS – ICELAND SEGMENT (2014 Australia / Duration: 6 mins)
Directed by: Joe G
Amazing cinematography, stunning landscapes, brave surfing and beautiful direction by Joe G. Surfers Nate Tyler, Dion Agius and Brendon Gibbens trace graceful lines amid icebergs in the frozen waters of Iceland.
4) FORCE (2014 USA / Duration: 19 mins)
Directed by: Aidan Haley, Fitz Cahall
Patagonia is home to jagged granite spires with some of the most technical climbing in the world and fierce storms that can literally bring you to your knees. These qualities might keep others away, but for climber and photographer Mikey Schaefer they fuel a deep love for the place.
Schaefer believes the more you get to know something, the more you care about it. But it takes time and commitment.
Using footage from 17 climbers over five years of expeditions — which includes both successes and misadventures — Force follows Schaefer on a quest to put up first ascents on all seven summits of the Fitz Roy Massif: de I'S, Saint Exúpery, Fitz Roy, Poincenot, Rafael Juarez, Mermoz and Guillaumet. Force is the story of learning to love a place while in pursuit of big dreams.
5) THE THOUSAND YEAR JOURNEY: OREGON TO PATAGONIA (2015 Bolivia / Duration: 5 mins)
Directed by: Kenny Laubbacher
Jedidiah Jenkins quit a job that he loved to ride his bicycle from Oregon to the southern tip of Patagonia. Friend and filmmaker Kenny Laubbacher joined him for a month and a half to pose the question: Why? Jenkins' poignant answers are woven together with sun-soaked travel footage and shots of life on the move in this short film about shattering routines, staying open hearted and keeping the flames of inspiration not just burning, but raging. The Thousand Year Journey is a paean to travel, adventure and, as Jenkins puts it, "turning your 100 years on this planet into 1,000."
6) MAKING WAVES (2015 UK / Duration: 9 mins)
Directed by: Harri Grace
Morocco has some terrific surf breaks, but for most local Muslim women these waves are off limits. Not so for Oumaima Erhali, a 17 year old determined to partake in the sport she loves.
7) RIVER OF EDEN (2014 USA / Duration: 6 mins)
Directed by: Pete McBride
Raised in Colorado's Roaring Fork Valley, where he still lives, frequent Mountainfilm guest Pete McBride is an accomplished photographer and filmmaker with a strong affinity for rivers. His portrait of the Colorado River in distress, Chasing Water, made a strong impression at Mountainfilm in 2011. This year, he tells a story of hope by way of preservation of a far less famous river: the upper Navua in Fiji, sometimes known as the River of Eden or the tropical Grand Canyon. While McBride says in his narration that the river's beauty is "indescribable," he provides a powerful testimonial for it on film and shows that sometimes conservation does win out over resource extraction.
8) MERU (2015 USA / Duration: 87 mins)
Directed by: Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, Jimmy Chin
Meru, a formidably jagged peak in India (also called the Shark’s Fin), has been tempting — and foiling — climbers for decades.
In 2007, the trio of Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk were turned back a few hundred feet from the summit, an effort chronicled in Samsara (Mountainfilm 2008). The three men decided to try it again in 2011, even after a series of mishaps, including a serious head injury to Ozturk and a scary avalanche slide for Chin.
Given these issues, the decision to make a second attempt was controversial within the climbing community and inside the men's families. Anker was healthy and motivated, but his wife, Jenni Lowe-Anker (the widow of the alpinist Alex Lowe who was climbing with Anker on Shishapangma in 1999 when he died), had understandable concerns. These back stories add texture, depth, vulnerability and conflict to a film that would be plenty compelling even if it were focused solely on this once-impossible ascent.
9) Beat Down (2014 USA / Duration: 4 mins)
Directed by: Anson Fogel
There's a man named Anson Fogel, and when he comes up with an idea for a short film, everyone listens. Fogel put out a call to friends last fall that simply said: "Meet me in the desert — I have an idea." Without hesitation, his crew assembled near Moab, Utah, and pulled off one of the most extraordinary stunts in Mountainfilm Adrenaline program history.
