Sample of Friday Night Films:
Eastern Rises - The Kamchatka peninsula in the Russian Far East may as well be at the end of the earth. Its enormous, wild landscape is threaded with rivers, swimming with massive mouse-eating trout and swarming with bugs and bears. In other words, this place is the Holy Grail for truly obsessed, halfway insane fly fishermen
As It Happens - At the beginning of this terrific short, Renan Ozturk (director of the award-winning Samsara at Mountainfilm 2009) addresses how disconnected an expedition and a film can be, which happens simply because of the time that elapses between the two.
Waypoint Namibia - The goal of this climbing expedition to Namibia was not only to find a way up an explored face, but also to delve deeper into the culture of southern Africa. Climbers Majka Burhardt, Peter Doucette and Kate Rutherford attempt a trip that is as much about experiencing a way of life as it is about feeling the adrenaline rush of adventure.
Nico's Challenge - Nico Calabria was born with only one leg, but his disability does not define him. As he says, “Even though I have one leg, I can still do what anyone else can.” In this short documentary, he takes on the highest peak in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro, with his father, Carl, and shares his success with those less fortunate than him.
