2019 FILM COLLECTION
Perspectives (6 mins)
Director: Scott Secco, Canada
Everyone views the world differently. The chaotic cities, the surreal mountains, the kind people; each provide a beautiful and unique experience. On a bike journey in the Himalaya, the unfamiliar environment is amplified with every pedal stroke, taking the rider further into the unknown, closer to connection, and toward the realisation that perspective is everything.
Cerro Kishtwar – An Ice Cold Story (30 min)
Director: Julian Zanker, Germany, subtitles.
The ban on climbing in the Kashmir mountains was lifted, so three alpinists set off to attempt an unclimbed face. But the difficulties were greater than expected and they encountered hard technical climbing at high altitude. Let’s just say things didn’t go exactly according to plan.
ICEolation (29 mins)
Directors: Sophie Ballagh & Ewan Blyth, New Zealand
Two people, two weeks, two kayaks. A journey beyond wilderness, via sea kayak, to connect with a land of ice and penguins. Two paddlers with adventurous spirits undertake a self-supported sea kayak expedition in Antarctica.
