Play List for the night includes:

FOR MY DAUGHTER’S SAKE

For MB, it’s time. She’s long dreamed of going to the salt to chase a new species on a fly rod, and now, it’s her opportunity. But there’s a hitch.

She’s not interested in the A-list of fly fishing species. Permit? Not right now. Bonefish? Might be nice. Trevally? Well, that’s a long plane ride.

No, MB wants to do this her way. She wants… a tripletail.

For Danielle, saltwater species are home. From the Eastern shore of Mobile bay, all the way to the Florida Keys, she’s cut her teeth on every saltwater species imaginable. She’s passionate about protecting tripletail and raising awareness for the species. Together, they’ll travel across the south, deep into the Alabama River delta to try and catch what many consider one of the most unique fish in saltwater.

EXTREME MINDS: FREEDIVING SEGMENT

Extreme Minds is a groundbreaking documentary that delves deep into the mental health benefits of extreme sports. This feature-length film combines personal stories of athletes with expert insights from psychologists who specialise in adventure therapy.

The documentary features interviews with highlining, BASE jumping, big wave surfing, and freediving athletes who share their inspiring stories of overcoming trauma, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues through their participation in these sports.

As a case study, the film introduces an individual who is facing mental health challenges and has never tried extreme sports before. The documentary follows this individual as they receive guidance and advice from the athletes featured in the film and participate in extreme sports. The experiences of the case study, including their interactions with sporting communities, are captured in the film, and viewers will see firsthand how extreme sports can be a therapeutic tool for those facing similar challenges.

This groundbreaking documentary pushes the boundaries of conventional therapy and highlights the potential of extreme sports as a means of promoting healing and well-being.

THE DESTINY OF A SHERPA WOMAN

Step by step. To the rhythm of Yangji's sure and steady pace, we walk through her life journey, as she returns after many years of absence to the poor village in the Everest region where she grew up. She who turned her back on the mountain as a teenager in the hope of escaping the misery that reigns in the valley of her childhood never thought she would come back, and even less so with the title of mountain guide...

This portrait is part of a series entitled 'Altitudes' which explores the many facets of the relationship between man and mountain across the world and cultures.

Director: Louise Thaller, Stanislas Giroux

THE ASCENSION SERIES - MORAG SKELTON

Morag Skelton believes that nothing should come between anyone and getting out there in nature. As a deaf climber constantly pushing the limits of possible, she lives that belief.

The Ascension Series explores stories of people pushing through barriers to define themselves in the great outdoors. Part two features Morag Skelton who doesn’t let being deaf limit what’s possible on the mountainside.
