Watch 90 minutes of brand new adventure films from our 2019 International Film Competition presented by Pertex

We’re delighted to announce the films within Collection E.

Be undammed, remove boundaries, ride free!

Deep in the ocean, a free diver drifts past borders and beasts, a Zuni map artist recenter's the world with water colour, a young kayaker comes a-cropper in the Grand Canyon, and Robert Macfarlane voices the course of the River Dee over forest and fell.

 

UPSTREAM

Upstream is a new film by the writer Robert Macfarlane and the director Rob Petit. The film, which is shot entirely from the air, follows the course of the River Dee in Scotland all the way to its source in the Cairngorm mountains, the highest of any river in Britain.

CREEK SESSIONS

Nature has a rhythm – it just takes one to tune into it. Jess Kilroy – musician, climber and conservationist – travels to wilderness areas around the West creating music from the natural sounds she finds there, with the goal of sparking people's love for these wild lands.

HOW NOT TO CAPTURE THE GRAND CANYON

What a young (over confident) videographer learned while trying to capture the Grand Canyon from a boat.

COUNTER MAPPING

Jim Enote, a traditional Zuni farmer and director of the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center, is working with Zuni artists to create maps that bring an indigenous voice and perspective back to the land, countering Western notions of place and geography and challenging the arbitrary borders imposed on the Zuni world.

(DES)EQUILIBRADOS

The unbalanced walk on a thin line between trees in the Amazon forest is a unique experience. Either up on the highest tree or across a river bank, highline starts when you focus, stand up, breath and find your balance.
