Ascend: Reframing Disability in the Outdoors
Director: Mike Ferrell
“It’s not about these summits, it’s about these experiences in the mountains with my friends and communities, having conversations about what it feels like to be a minority in the mountains…” Last winter, Vasu Sojitra and his two friends Emilé Zynobia and Zahan Billimoria set out to ski Mt. Moran—in the process, reshaped the conversation around disability in the outdoors.

You can buy just about anything in this world but time, and Craig Bierly is a man who truly understands the sacred and finite gift of time. After dedicating 26 years of his life to the aerospace industry, he could have comfortably retired to a sedentary life in a big house, but he opted instead for a nomadic life in his van—long before #vanlife became a hipster trend and hashtag. More than a decade after his retirement, Bierly is still on the road, chasing his dream of riding as much United States singletrack as he possibly can until his own time on the Earth runs out.

Flow, an aerial and symphonic journey with skier Sam Favret, in the heart of a closed resort during this very special winter of 2021. A dose of unreality, serenity and Sam’s powerful skiing. But above all the pleasure of rediscovering a playground back to its wild state.
FROM MY WINDOW
Director: Frank Pickell

With the help of her friend and mentor, blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer, Melissa sets out to conquer something far greater than a summit. Through humility and grace, Melissa proves that what is within us, is stronger than what’s in our way.
