Marlborough Tramping Club Film Selection
Where the Wild Things Play (4 mins), Director: Krystle Wright, USA. Friday night at the local watering hole and … where the ladies at? Answer: BASE jumping from high desert cliffs, performing tricks on slacklines, climbing granite routes, shredding singletrack, skiing backcountry lines and generally just leaving the fellas behind.
RJ Ripper (19 mins), Director: Joey Schusler, USA, Subtitles.
Kids and bikes; wherever you are in the world, they go together. The chaotic streets of Kathmandu may not seem like a typical breeding ground for world-class mountain bikers, but then again nothing is typical about Rajesh (RJ) Magar.
Liv Along the Way (24 mins), Director: Mike Douglas, Canada. Since she first summited Mont Blanc as a teen, Liv Sansoz knew she would make her life in the mountains. She was twice crowned World Champion in sport climbing, and eventually expanded her professional horizons to mixed climbing, ski mountaineering, and base jumping. In 2017 Liv set out in an attempt to climb all 82
4000m peaks in the European Alps in a single year. As she’s learned several times throughout her life, things don’t always go as planned.
Foodless Odyssey (11 mins), Director: Anthill Films, Canada. A longtime dream to bike-pack through hundreds of kilometres of wilderness on a remote Island, living entirely off the land. The rules were simple: carry all the survival tools needed to bike, fish, hunt and camp…. but absolutely no food.
The Frozen Road (25 mins), Director: Ben Page, UK. Compelled by Jack London’s assertion that ‘any man who is a man can travel alone’, Ben drops everything to fat-bike the world, completely alone. He encounters the threat of wolves, well below-freezing temperatures, and solitude. The film is an honest reflection on a solo trip; of the wonder, terror and frustration he experienced when riding through the unforgiving emptiness of one of the world’s ‘last great wildernesses’.
The Sky Piercer (40 mins), Director: Jason Hancox, NZ. A team, led by Sam Smoothy, hit the road with the objective to climb and ski the East Face of Aoraki/Mt Cook. They are being beaten down by the weather with the possibility of meeting the objective looking less and less likely.
