YELLOW FILM PROGRAMME
RUNNING THE ROOF
Three friends from the UK and Canada are desperate to ditch their desks and go on an adventure. One night, after a few too many drinks, they place a bet. They spin a globe and wherever their finger lands, they will run. Tajikistan. This is not a story about finish lines or medals, but about what happens when you trust in nothing but your own two feet to carry you across one of the last truly wild landscapes on earth
RETURN TO EL GUAYAS
Ben Stookesberry, Rafa Ortiz and Lane Jacobs attempt the first descent of one of Colombia’s wildest rivers: El Rio Guayas. Paddling into the unknown, the team face rumours of armed groups in an unstable security situation, and raging rapids from torrential rain. Navigating by satellite imagery, this is an expedition deep into South American jungle, with roadless beauty, powerful white-water and extreme adventure.
K2: THE IMPOSSIBLE DESCENT
K2, the Savage Mountain, holds a mythical place in the hearts of climbers – one in four do not return from it. On 22 July 2018, Polish ski-mountaineer Andrzej Bargiel makes ‘the impossible descent’ from its summit. He does it solo, and without supplemental oxygen. The mountaineering community is stunned and mainstream press takes notice. Join Andrzej across knife-edge ridges, above 1,000m cliffs and down 75-degree slopes in a nail-biting accomplishment of one of mountaineering’s most coveted firsts.
Team Charge are back – and more charged than ever! Five top freeskiers and one world champion drone pilot have a week in British Columbia with the instructions: charge as hard as you can every day. With unique angles, high flying trickery and impressive jumps between tight treelines, Charge 2 ups the level of difficulty on the original film… high energy and epic powder guaranteed.
At 1,788 metres, Mount Brunswick is the highest peak of the North Shore Mountains in British Columbia – a rugged, spectacular climb that takes regular hikers seven to eight hours complete. Enter trail runner Jeanelle Hazlett, who’s attempting to set a Fastest Known Time (FKT) record on the mountain. A ferocious challenge… and on the knife-edge ridge, one wrong step could mean serious injury or death.
Please note that some of the films may contain a small amount of coarse language.
