Meet the underdog of the Swiss ski scene. As a young Turkish immigrant, Mustafa was destined to play football and take over his parents’ kebab restaurant. But one day, fate put a pair of skis in his way. With buckets of natural charisma, an immense passion for skiing and an outrageous ability to take huge bails, this is the story of how Mustafa became an unexpected local hero.
No Way! (Jean Baptiste Chandelier)
Watch out – there’s a paraglider about! Pro paraglider pilot and video maker Jean Baptiste Chandelier specialises in proximity flying: swooping low to the ground and over natural or man-made obstacles. In this joyful short film, ‘JB’ takes his unique low-flying, ground-skimming art combining paragliding and filmmaking to a whole new level.
What happens when you combine a renewable energy sailboat with an arctic ski expedition in Greenland for the first time ever? Athletes Rachael Burks and Jessica Baker put the idea to test on an inspiring expedition through wild landscapes and seascapes, as compromise and progress go hand in hand.
Two gritty teams of hobbyist cavers are poised to break records for the longest and deepest caves in Canada. After discovering a flooded underground chamber, Katie Graham, an accountant by day, becomes obsessed with returning to the Bisaro Anima cave to push the caving depth record. At the same time, a passionate Vancouver Island team is attempting to link two tunnel systems to create the longest known cave in the country. With muddy crawls, vertical pits and underwater squeezes, these are places where no person has been before.
Reel Rock: Cenote
9 minutes, subtitles (from Spanish)
When young papaya farmer Adolfo ‘Fito’ Trujillo started climbing, he didn’t even know that the sport had a name. The more time he spends at Mexico’s spellbinding cenotes – mystical fresh-water sinkholes on Yucatán Peninsula – the more he begins to explore the walls and rocks surrounding them.
26 minutes, contains some subtitles (from French)
Jumping from the top of Nameless Tower in Pakistan (6,200m) is to combine one of the most beautiful climbs in the world with one of the most beautiful BASE jumps imaginable.
