This film was started as an opportunity to collect photographs and videos that inspired me to new adventures and farther places. Now I hope in all sincerity I can share my inspiration with you.
For the past 12 months I followed an incredible bunch of foolhardy athletes into the Wilderness and the Mountains and I asked them to share their most unbelievable stories.
I believe that we are capable of great and brave things, that there is so much more we must see. We live in a time bereft of self-reliance, a time of abundance - this is a return to something rudimental.
This is an attempt to rekindle the fire that burns behind our eyes. Inside each of us is a desire that burns for the unclimbed mountains & unseen places.
Why? Why grab a tent and leave for a few days, why see something new, or simply share an adventure with someone? Between Snow & Stars is my answer to those questions.
I dedicate this film to every adventurous spirit.
