Into Darkness: Journey along with a group of cavers who push impossibly small passages to access some of the final frontiers on earth. The images and sounds of these spectacular and remote wilderness caves reveal a fantastic world unlike anything we experience on the surface.

180 South: Surfer and climber Jeff Johnson retraces the epic 1968 journey of Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins, on which they drove, mountain climbed and surfed their way to Chilean Patagonia. Along the way, Jeff encounters surf, mountains, a dangerous ocean crossing, pulp mills, cowboys, and dams. The film is a road trip movie, a historic document. Chris Malloy | 2010 | 86 min. | USA
