The EOFT Films:
Simone Moro and Tamara Lunger are an odd pair.
As an alpinist, Simone prefers to take the hard way and has nearly 30 years of winter climbing experience.
Tamara, on her way to achieving a long and successful career in ski mountaineering, is just 30 years old.
Despite the age difference, these two shared a similar goal and their roles were clear-he the wise mentor, she the eager student.
But as the team heads for Kangchenjunga to attempt the highest traverse across 8000-meter peaks, their roles begin to shift.
The dugout canoe is the oldest type of boat archaeologists have found.
For thousands of years it has been used by the indigenous people of South America to navigate the jungle.
With such a boat-basically made from hollowed out tree trunk-Benjamin Sadd and James Trundle have chosen to explore the mystical Amazon region.
Making this dream come true starts with a lot of hard work-first step, felling a massive tree.
With the help of a Huaorani man named Bay Nenquiqwi, their dugout canoe gradually takes shape.
Amidst the screaming monkeys and swinging lianas, the two Brits embark on a journey into the mysterious world of the jungle and discover themselves in an unexpected way.
Freeskier Sam Favret follows the call of the ice and shows us the Mer de Glace from an entirely new perspective.
For him, France’s largest glacier is basically a terrain park with natural half-pipes, kickers, and tunnels.
We accompany him on his ride through a world of ice and snow, from high-speed descents to the depths of the glacier and back up again, with lots of freestyle tricks along the way.
Steph Davis is the first woman to summit all pinnacles of the Fitz Roy Massif in Patagonia, the first woman to free climb the Salathé Wall on El Calpitan in Yosemite Valley and the first woman to free solo a route graded 5.11 – without a rope, without protection.
But now she has moved from her house on four wheels into a house with four walls.
It’s situated in Moab, in the middle of the Utah desert, not far away from the imposing sandstone walls with its endless climbing and basejumping possibilities.
They want to cross Greenland’s gigantic ice sheets with snow kites, followed by a kayaking first descent in a meltwater stream down the glacier.
But Greenland is tough terrain-it’s a journey into a fragile yet dangerous paradise.
During the snowkiting leg, Sarah must deal with a serious crash on the ice.
Later, Boomer deliberately risks his skin on an enormous multilevel waterfall, and even Ben, the nard-nosed expedition expert, must ultimately concede that it can be officially too cold to kayak.
So get your tickets today for the perfect autumn-evening event launching at the end of October.
