2020 RED PROGRAMME

More films will be announced soon!

14 minutes

Join French athlete Nouria Newman as she embarks on a 375km solo kayaking expedition down the most remote and daunting rivers in the Indian Himalaya. With some hair-raising moments, Nouria is forced to push herself to the edge of her limits, saying “I felt really vulnerable. I had a proper look at what my guts were made of.”

THE LADAKH PROJECT

10 minutes

During the longest government shutdown in American history, a team from Mexico and the USA assemble to establish a slackline that crosses the border between them. Risking grave consequences, they hope to spread a message about the importance coming together and using our passions to connect cultures. “We are people from different lands, but we are all one.”

THE IMAGINARY LINE

5 minutes

 

Question: what do you get when you drop four top freeskiers and a world champion drone pilot at Chatter Creek, British Columbia, for a week and instruct them to charge as hard as they can, every day? Answer: unique footage of next level skiing from a world-class skiing area, with trees, chutes, steeps, flips and unlimited powder…

CHARGE

20 minutes

 

Until recently speed climbing was seen as an obscure sub-discipline of the sport, but with climbing’s inclusion in the 2020 Olympics, it’s about to be thrust on to the biggest athletic stage in the world. Self-proclaimed old-fashioned trad climber Zach Barr investigates this intriguing activity and meets the climbers who literally run up walls… with euphoric crowds cheering them on.

UP TO SPEED
 

2020 BLUE PROGRAMME

More films will be announced soon

36 minutes

1,000 miles, 200+kg, 65 days, 3 mates, 1 mountain. Using snow-kites to travel great distances, with massive loads at speeds up to 60kmph, this is the epic tale of Leo Houlding, Jean Burgun and Mark Sedon's daring dream to reach the summit of the most remote mountain on earth: The Spectre, Antarctica.

SPECTRE EXPEDITION - MISSION ANTARCTICA

18 minutes

Nina Williams is drawn to climbing the most beautiful lines… which also happen to be the tallest. Nina specialises in highball bouldering – climbing tall boulders of extreme difficulty, without a rope – which combines the physicality of bouldering with the mental discipline of free soloing. Watch in awe as she flexes her guns and tests her nerves well into the no-fall zone.

THE HIGH ROAD

11 minutes

 

Jaques Houot, 82, may just have found the fountain of youth. The Colorado-based French ski racer, downhill mountain biker, road cyclist and incorrigible flirt is the embodiment of joi de vivre. Jaques has survived countless close calls, including avalanches, cancer, car accidents, a heart attack and even attempted murder. As a survivor, he tries to enjoy every day he has, ripping through the mountains with his signature catchphrase, “No problem!”

THE FRENCHY
