2020 Adventure Film Set Selections:
Broken (7 minutes)
Directed by: Simon Perkins
After losing his leg to cancer as a young adult, Jon Wilson struggled with 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, vulnerable and honest connection with life.
Tough: The Roger Volkmann Story (15 minutes)
Directed by: Jeff Ostenson
After suffering a serious stroke at age 55, Dr. Roger Volkman, struggles to pursue his life-long passion for rock climbing. With many supporters and care-givers by his side he attempts to summit an old favorite climb – Devil’s Tower.
Ice & Palms (32 minutes)
Directed by Philipp Becker
Bikepacking takes on a whole new meaning when it’s the bike you’re wearing as a backpack. German freeskiers Jochen Mesle and Max Kroneck set out to cycle 1,800 kilometers from their homes in Durbheim, Germany to Nice, France, and ski big lines along the five-week journey. Although the ski resorts are closed for the season, spring comes late to the Austrian Alps. The friends must wait out storms and get creative about carrying 50 kilos of gear across a still-closed mountain pass to finally dip their ski boot-battered feet in the Mediterranean.
(People) of Water (23 minutes)
Directed by: Forest Woodward
For thousands of years, outrigger canoes have connected diverse cultures and people around the world. People of water follows the story of Rob Prechtl, a member of the US Men’s Raft team, as they embark on a journey to learn the craft of outrigger paddling.
Rios Patagonicos (22 minutes)
Directed by Marie Leclère and Bruno Foment
In 2018, the “Rios Patagonicos” expedition took 15 canyoneers to stride the immensity of Chilean Patagonia, in search for rivers and waterfalls. Their goal: explore untouched territories, spot and open over 30 canyons, on a unique territory, where canyoneering discipline is close to non-existent.
This event is presented by Lanesboro Arts and sponsored by the Wisconsin Public Radio, Commonweal Theatre, Inspire(d) Magazine, High Court Pub and Granny’s Liquors.
