Director: Matt Pycroft
Tom Randall is a world class crack climber. He is also a terrible runner, which is why his latest challenge seems like an odd choice. He decided to link up two of the Lake District's biggest and toughest endurance challenges, the Bob Graham Round and The Classic Rock challenge into one hellish 24 hour mad dash. A funny, honest, genuine and heartfelt story.
Ebb and Flow
Director: Alice Ward
A female led production featuring the surf community on the west coast of Ireland and shining a spotlight on its creative community. Enjoy the mystical relationship these women have with the power and magnitude of the Atlantic Oceanâs surf.
ASCEND: Reframing Disability in the Outdoors
Director: Faith E. Briggs
Vasu is not seeking to inspire you to feel good. His trauma doesnât exist solely to benefit the education of others. He is seeking to inspire you to move mountains. To take action. Skiing is the method, but the real mountains are the âismsâ that fail to support Disabled communities, communities of color and so many others for whom access has not been a right. Through his personal journey and the attempt of a new objective, the famed line âThe Skillet" on Mt. Moran, and through over 40,000 âdips to Nirvana,â we hear his truth and begin to comprehend what it might look like to be in solidarity.
