For the 2019 season, Kerikeri Adventure Film Festival are screening four adventure films back to back. We’ll take you by raft, bike, skis and kites to some of the remotest places on earth .
(6 mins) Director: Scott Secco, USA
Everyone views the world differently. The chaotic cities, the surreal mountains, the kind people; each provide a beautiful and unique experience. On a bike journey in the Himalaya, the unfamiliar environment is amplified with every pedal stroke, taking the rider further into the unknown, closer to connection, and toward the realisation that perspective is everything.
Cerro Kishtwar – An Ice Cold Story
(13 mins) Director: Julian Zanker, Germany
The ban on climbing in the Kashmir mountains was lifted, so three alpinists set off to attempt an unclimbed face. But the difficulties were greater than expected and they encountered hard technical climbing at high altitude. Let’s just say things didn’t go exactly according to plan. Five adventurers set off on a six-day, 300km unsupported journey. By combining new bike-packing and pack-rafting technology, they link together whitewater rivers and backcountry tracks through some of NZ’s under-appreciated wilderness areas.
Between the lines – Entre les lignes
(28 mins) Directors: Pierre Cadot and Thomas Guerrin, France
Classic French extreme skiing in the heart of the Alps, exploring the nooks and crannies of an already well-run mountain in order to continue finding new, steep (very steep) lines in the Mont-Blanc massif.
Spectre Expedition – To the End of the Earth
(49 mins), Directors: Alastair Lee & Leo Houlding, UK
2,000 kilometres, 200kg each, 65 days, 3 mates, 1 mountain. Unsupported, using snow-kites to travel great distance, with massive loads and at speeds up to 60 kph, this is the epic tale of Wanaka local Mark Sedon, Leo Houlding (UK) and Jean Burgun’s (France) daring dream to reach the summit of the most remote mountain on Earth; The Spectre, Antarctica.
