Chasing the sublime

UK | 2018  | 7 MINUTES

Cold? Uncomfortable? Exhausting? Absolutely. But for Kate Rew and Kari Furre, the founders of The Outdoor Swimming Society, cold water swimming brings life into sharp focus, offering a taste of the sublime. This film follows the women as they plunge into the darkly beautiful lochs of the UK, overcoming fear and discomfort as they mine the allure of freeform swimming.

FILM

The Hut Master

USA | 2020 | 7 MINUTES

For over a century, a small network of alpine huts have operated in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Run by off-the-grid teams called “croo”, they span 50 miles of the Appalachian Trail and serve up home cooked meals each day to the many guests. Its hard to make food without ingredients, though, so Mack Brewer and her team at the Lake of the Clouds Hut hike in 70 pounds of supplies a few times a week because they know a full belly can also feed the soul.

Motherload

CANADA  |  2020 |  14 MINUTES

It is often said that the hardest part of any adventure is getting out the door. Planning and packing are tedious and time consuming. But the moment you cross over the threshold from the distractions of the real world to the freedom of the hills, everything seems to just fall into place.

Said no mother ever.

Follow professional skiers and mothers Tessa Treadway and Izzy Lynch as they carry the load of loss, life changing events,  and the love of their children into the mountains where they find the moments of peace, growth and healing that help them carry on.
