These films are part of the program:

A Nordic Skater

A Nordic Skater
The winters in Norway are long and cold. Rivers, fjords, and lakes are covered with a thick layer of ice and offer perfect conditions for a sport that is rather unknown: Nordic skating. Photographer Per Sollerman and his friends skate on the black ice for miles.

The Imaginary Line

The Imaginary Line
The border between the United States and Mexico has been a sensitive topic for many years. In a world that can sometimes tear us apart, a few slackliners want to bring people together. They set a highline that connects Mexico with the U.S. high above the Rio Grande to cross those imaginary lines that divide us.

The Flip

The Flip
On a bridge near Puebla, Mexico, French skydiver and base jumper Remi Angeli faces his biggest challenge yet. He wants to try a “gainer” for the first time. That means he has to jump forward and roll backwards in the air at the same time. Like a backflip—but in free fall.

Thabang

Thabang
Thabang Madiba is the first black South African to win a series of prizes in international trail running competitions. For him, running is destiny and chance. His competitors are aware that Thabang competes under difficult circumstances. Unlike him, they have not had to cycle, sometimes up to 50 kilometers, to the start line before even putting on their running shoes. Thabang’s greatest asset may not be his fast legs but his unequivocal resilience and perseverance.

Safe Haven

Safe Haven
For many young people in Memphis, the climbing hall “Memphis Rox” has become a safe haven. The city on the Mississippi no longer has the best reputation and offers only limited opportunities. “Memphis Rox” has therefore become a popular place for people to come together, inviting them to try a new sport and reach beyond their personal limits.

Into the Canyon

Into the Canyon
Photographer Pete McBride and journalist Kevin Fedarko want to transect the entire length of the Grand Canyon on foot—a mammoth undertaking. The two adventurers reach their limits unexpectedly quickly, but their mission keeps them going: to document the threats that surround one of America’s most treasured national parks. Mining, large-scale development projects, and ever-growing tourist traffic threaten this unique natural wonder.

Hunza: Ski and Culture in Pakistan
Sam Favret, Leo Slemett, and Julien Henry have chosen a mystical destination for their next freeride adventure—Pakistan’s Hunza Valley. On their journey, they descend breath-taking ski lines and have friendly encounters with the local population.

Chasing Monsters

Chasing Monsters
When thunderclouds are gathering on the horizon, Nick Moir is at the ready. Storms and tornadoes are this Australian photographer’s passion. While most people flee as quickly as possible from the path of a devastating storm, Nick races to the frontline to capture the chaos. The question is how far he can approach the untamed forces of nature before he himself is swallowed up by them.
