European Outdoor Film Tour
Catch the European Outdoor Film Tour at Thornbury Picture House showcasing two exhilarating films ADVENTURE and THE MOVEMENT.
ADVENTURE The French adventurer Eliott Schonfeld crosses the Himalayas from west
to east. Far off the beaten track, his path leads him through the wide valleys of Ladakh
and over barren passes and glaciers to Nepal. Seven-thousand-meter peaks are always
within view, but people and villages are a rare sighting. Eliott’s only companion on this
lonely trek is his horse, Robert. While the snow-covered and icy passages become a
serious challenge for his four-legged friend, Eliott himself acutely feels, during the
bitterly cold nights, that he may have spared too much on his equipment. Still, the
minimalist adventurer explores his limits along the way and eventually renounces the
last amenities of civilization: tent, sleeping bag, and lighter. How little is just enough?
RUNNING THE MOVEMENT celebrates the oldest form of movement: running. This is
what we are built for, not sitting or standing. A goal and a pair of shoes (optional) are all
that’s needed to bring even the most diverse group of people together. No matter how
old we are, what language we speak, or what skin color we have, running democratizes
us and our surroundings. We can conquer new terrain and trails far into the
backcountry and rediscover urban environments. THE MOVEMENT shows the different
ways in which the sport is experienced and what it moves in us.
