South of Summer (20mins)
Presented by filmer Matt Ruta w/ a brief talk
"Last fall, Valerio Arquint and I took a 7000 KM road trip through the Andes. We chose the freedom of a van, and decided our route as we went, skiing whatever caught our eye as we made our way south into Patagonia. We also used it as an opportunity to try to document the experience without compromising it, which turned into quite a project. Neither of use had any filmmaking experience to speak of. But with some hard work and a lot of trial and error, we made something we’re proud to share."
Human Powered (18mins)
Created by Matt Cecill
The Finlayson Arm 28k/50k/100k is a trail running event based outside Victoria, BC. The race traverses 100km of rugged, mountainous terrain and spans a 3-day period in September of each year. It takes a vast, dedicated community of organizers and volunteers to produce such an event. Follow along as Race Director Myke Labelle and his event crew welcome runners from all over the world to their hometown trail network. This project will focus on the characters who bring this event to life, the work involved, and the motives behind producing such a race - as well as showcasing the natural beauty of the area. Human Powered aims to document the world of Ultramarathon Running through the eyes of those who dream up such events.
GB Duro 2019 (32mins)
Created by EF Gone Racing
The GBDuro is a 2,000km race devised by The Racing Collective based on the new GB Divide, which is a mostly off-road bikepacking route that joins the UK’s most southerly and northern points. Lachlan Morton set off from Land’s End, not really knowing what was in store. This is what he found. For this event, the GB Divide route is broken down into four timed stages, with the rider with the lowest aggregate time winning (but there are zero prizes). The route was first completed by Lachlan Morton (EF Education First) on the 28th of June 2019 during the inaugural #GBDURO19 ride.
