FILM PROGRAM 2

WALLMAPU

(Chile, 6 min)

Director: Ben Sturgulweski

Australian Premiere

The Pehuenche people of present-day Chile speak Mapudungun: ‘the language of the land.’ This land, their universe, is known as Wallmapu. Two skiers enter, into a breathtaking creation of ancient Araucaria trees, looming volcanoes, and windblown snow.

UP TO SPEED

(United States, 21 min)

Directors: Peter Mortimer, Zachary Barr, Nick Rosen

When climbing was announced as part of the 2020 Olympics, it was a monumental occasion for the sport. But many climbers were shocked to learn that one of three combined events required to compete for a medal is… speed climbing. REEL ROCK correspondent Zachary Barr looks into this little-known and seldom practiced sub-discipline of the sport, and the role it will play in shaping climbing’s future. Barr’s journey from the U.S. to France (the birthplace of modern speed climbing) to South Asia (it’s actually huge there) culminates at an international competition in Moscow, where speed demons race up a 15-meter wall in less than six seconds.

BROKEN

(United States, 7 min)

Director: Simon Perkins

Australian Premiere

After losing his leg to cancer as a young adult, Jon Wilson struggled with the emotions of feeling broken. Challenging himself in the outdoors presented a possible remedy. Today, crutching up and skiing down mountains at night provides a distinct backdrop for Jon to explore, accept, and embrace the idea of "brokenness," allowing him to find a more sincere, genuine and honest connection with life.

THE FLOW EFFECT

(Australia, 12 min)

Director: Lachlan Henry

The Flow Effect is a documentary short film that follows an accredited freediver, Liv Rose as she explores the vast beauty of the underwater world. For Liv, Freediving is an escape from the overwhelming nature of daily life. With one breath, Liv can dive down for minutes at a time serving as both an exploratory and meditative experience. The time Liv spends underwater helps to relax her mind and allow her to ease into the aquatic tranquillity of the ocean. A passionate environmentalist, Liv strives to show us the unparalleled beauty of the ocean and the emotional connection she feels for it. She challenges us all to try Freediving, to take a moment to stop and be still, and to embrace the remedial qualities of the ocean.

FILMMAKER EXPECTED

CARPE DIEM

(United States, 6 min)

Directors: Jake Gigliotti, Kevin Shiramizu

In a city of people trying to catch a break, one lucky man hooks into an unexpected dream that becomes the roll of a lifetime, reminding him to seize each new day as a chance to do what he loves.

LIFE OF PIE

(United States, 11 min)

Directors: Ben Knight, Travis Rummel

Australian Premiere

When Jen Zeuner and Anne Keller moved to the tiny, conservative high desert town of Fruita, Colorado almost twenty years ago it was not on the map as far as mountain biking was concerned. Jen and Anne have left an indelible imprint on Fruita. At the outset, they were on the fringe and a bit ostracized; they’re now at the very heart and soul of the community. Unlike Moab, Fruita isn’t just known for it’s riding – you go there to eat pizza. Jen and Anne weren’t shy about using their lesbian innuendos to sell pizza, even from the beginning when Fruita wasn’t quite ready for it.

DANCING IN THE DARK

(Australia, 4 min)

Director: Spencer Frost

A cinematic poem and exploration of moonlight surfing.

FILMMAKER EXPECTED

PACIFIC LINES

(Australia, 24 mins)

Directors: Brett Williams, Simon Waterhouse

A story of cultural identity and rock climbing exploration as we follow one of Australia’s top rock climbers – 14 year old Angie Scarth-Johnson – on an adventure to a remote and rugged island in the South Pacific. After smashing climbing records around the world, Angie is now looking for her next challenge. She will journey to the Pacific island of ‘Eua with her family and friend Lee Cossey to explore her own ancestry, and search for a classic line on the wild frontier of rock climbing development. Pacific Lines is an inspiring, heartfelt and funny documentary about one of the most human subjects – identity. By exploring her family’s past, she can forge her own path ahead.

FROZEN MIND: OVER THE ICE

(France/Switzerland, 4 min)

Director: Antoine Frioux, Maxime Moulin

MOUNTAIN IN THE HALLWAY

(United States, 25 min)

Director: Todd Jones

Australian Premiere

Tate McDowell and Brian McDonnell were diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016. Unacquainted prior to their diagnosis, they were brought together via passion for the Tetons and their battle to beat cancer. While undergoing treatments both men were reminded of their passion for the mountains through murals in their treatment facilities. This passion and their shared struggle with cancer brought Tate and Brian to the decision to share in a lifelong goal of climbing the Grand Teton. In the summer of 2017 Tate and Brian will set out to climb the Grand Teton as a symbol of overcoming and persevering through struggle. Both Tate and Brian hope to bring awareness to the prevention of colon cancer through this project.

BIG WORLD

(United States, 13 min)

Directors: David Morton, Fitz Cahall

Australian Premiere

As parents, how do we teach our kids that there is a world beyond social media, standardized tests and soccer practice? In April 2018, Eddie Bauer athlete David Morton and his seven-year-old son Thorne embarked on a week-long stand-up-paddleboard journey down the Karnali and Bheri Rivers in Western Nepal. David makes his living guiding some of the world’s most incredible peaks and Nepal is like a second home. He wanted to deepen Thorne’s understanding of the world beyond their Seattle neighborhood. Engaging with this world helps us grow. “There’s a basic paradox to parenting,” says David. “You have to keep your kids safe, but you have to teach them to take risks and follow curiosity. Life is undeniably richer with a little bit of daring."

SAND IN THE SKY

(United States, 4 min)

Directors: Dana Saint

Traveling with a baby is an interesting thing. They add all sorts of challenges to any trip you do. Long flights, strollers, nap schedules, and car seats all seem to pile up and complicate what is supposed to be a relaxing vacation. Sometimes, you may even find yourself wondering...is all this effort worth it for a baby who won't even remember the trip? All these experiences and memories will eventually disappear, like a fading dream. So is it worth it?
