On The Road Reel 2

Runtime: 122 mins

NATURAL MYSTIC

NATURAL MYSTIC

(France, 3 min)

Director: Maxime Moulin

Natural mystic, an original concept that sees Sam Favret’s mind-blowing performance filmed entirely by drone. Come aboard for three minutes of thundering skiing through the Aiguilles Rouges of Chamonix, no gimmicks or tricks and no music. Instead, the sound of the elements takes pride of place for full immersion into the tracks of this local Chamonix rider.

BANKING ON BAILEY

BANKING ON BAILEY

(United States, 9 min)

Director: Tim Kemple

Banks, Idaho is home to 17 hearty residents; including Ryan Bailey, a white-water kayaker, former wildland firefighter, and unofficial Mayor of the town. Situated at the confluence of the North and South Fork of the Payette, Banks means something if you’re a kayaker – the same way that the North Shore of Hawaii means something to surfers, or Yosemite means something to climbers. Growing up, the river terrified Ryan, but it kept calling him. Twenty-one years after his first competition in Banks he continues to live his life unapologetically – as he’s not concerned about “what’s next”, but rather “what’s right now”.

PEDAL THROUGH

PEDAL THROUGH

(United States, 14 min)

Directors: Aly Nicklas & Analise Cleopatra

Pedal Through invites us into the world of director-lead Analise Cleopatra as she discovers the healing and joy of mountain biking. Analise had never camped or ridden a bike off the pavement when she decided to plan a week-long mountain biking adventure with an all black female team: her best friend and fellow newcomer to the sport, Day Toliver, and professional mountain biker Brooklyn Bell. Together, they traverse the Oregon backcountry on an adventure full of exploration, curiosity, waterfalls, old growth forest, sparkling starscapes, and deep healing. With raw authenticity, Analise shares all the intimate foibles, fear, fun and beauty of discovering her place in the outdoors. The landscape opens to greet her as she learns to lean into uncertainty, accept support and trust herself on this wild ride.

RIVER LOOTERS

RIVER LOOTERS

(United States, 4 min)

Director: Rebecca Hynes

Three river surfers turned into obsessed free divers hunting for lost belongings in the Deschutes River. When not on a quest to reunite people with their lost belongings, they dive for trash. The most water logged and shreddy good samaritans in Oregon.

UNITED STATES OF JOES

UNITED STATES OF JOES

(United States, 22 min)

Directors: Peter Mortimer & Nick Rosen

In rural Utah, a valley of world-class bouldering is nestled among a conservative community of Mormons, cowboys and coal miners. When a ragged band of punk rock climbers shows up, the two cultures inevitably clash. After years of antagonism, a group of climbers work with locals to build a more harmonious future. But in this divided era, is that even possible?

TRANSENDING

TRANSENDING

(United States, 9 min)

Director: Marin Hart

This is a journey of extensive vulnerability, heartbreak and courage. TranSending showcases the vulnerable journey into self discovery as experienced by Erin Parisi, the first Trans Woman to take on the Seven Summits.

CLIMB YOUR DREAMS

CLIMB YOUR DREAMS

(United States, 3 min)

Director: Josh Greenwood

For so many the outdoors and its related activities provide an outlet, a way of escaping the everyday and reconnecting with the natural world and like-minded individuals. For others still, a serious lack of diversity and representation within that same space and those same activities can be discouraging. In the face of this glaring issue of much discussion we see Climb Your Dreams. 

RUNNING THOUGHTS

RUNNING THOUGHTS

(United States, 3 min)

Director: Fitz Cahall

Sometimes, an hour is all you get. Often, an hour is all you need. In those 60 minutes, for every question that gets answered, a new one gets asked. Tension releases into the passing wind. Goals are reaffirmed. Internal yarns are spun. Knots get untangled, and everything makes sense — even if you’ve forgotten it all by the time you get home. Join trail runners Perry Cohen, Junko Kazukawa and José González to hear what runs through their heads as they run through nature.

STOKE CHASERS

STOKE CHASERS

(United States, 9 min)

Director: Jo Anna Edmison

In an interestingly subliminal way, many young girls are taught how to watch and not how to do. Girls are taught on to think that they are more fragile and weak. Stoke Chasers aims to get women to stand up and fight this notion of just watching and to break the connection between being feminine and being fragile. When the unspoken barriers of the male dominated surf and skate world are broken, women are celebrated for being a part of a similar community, but not necessarily the same community. Stoke Chasers poses the question, “what if we were told we were strong from the beginning?” We would be able to foster a community of girls that were not complacent with watching, but girls that are more inclined to be doing. 

ONE STAR REVIEWS: NATIONAL PARKS

ONE STAR REVIEWS: NATIONAL PARKS

(United States, 1 min)

Director: Alex Massey

These days people feel the need to rate everything online, and not even National Parks are safe. We hear from some unsatisfied customers who feel there’s plenty of room for improvement with some of America’s most beautiful places.

THROUGH THE BREAKS

THROUGH THE BREAKS

(United States, 9 min)

Director: Tom Attwater

Jason Cajune lives in Livingston, MT where he designs and builds wooden drift boats alongside his family. Last summer, Jason packed up one of his custom boats and led his family on a float trip down the Missouri River, through the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument to American Prairie Reserve. Their trip serves as a journey through family traditions, a protected landscape and layers of history over time.

A PRAYER FOR JOSHUA JACKSON

A PRAYER FOR JOSHUA JACKSON

(United States, 22 min)

Directors: Ryan Heffernan, Grayson Schaffer, Kahlil Hudson

What do you do when the dream you’ve spent your entire life working toward is taken away in a moment? It’s a challenge race car driver Joshua Jackson must navigate, after his promising career comes to a screeching halt. After first getting on the track at the age of four, not being a driver feels near impossible — but the reality isn’t so simple. A Prayer for Joshua Jackson is a story of loss, determination and recovery; examining the inherent risk and reward of being in the driver’s seat.

VOICE ABOVE WATER

VOICE ABOVE WATER

(United States, Indonesia, 11 min)

Director: Dana Frankoff

Voice Above Water is the story of a 90-year-old Balinese fisherman, Wayan, who can no longer fish because of the vast amount of plastic in the ocean. Wayan instead uses his fishing boat and net to collect trash in hopes of one day being able to fish again. The story is a glimpse into how one human is using his resources to make a difference and a reminder that if we all play our part we can accomplish something much greater than ourselves.

BROKEN

BROKEN

(United States, 7 min)

Director: Simon Perkins

After losing his leg to cancer as a young adult, Jon Wilson struggled with feeling broken. Challenging himself in the outdoors presented a possible remedy. Today, crutching up and skiing down mountains at night provides a distinct backdrop for Jon to explore, accept, and embrace the idea of “brokenness,” allowing him to find a more sincere, vulnerable and honest connection with life.
