It Is The People,
17 minutes, Director: Elina Osborne, NZ. They say your first thru-hike is like
your first love. With just a pack on her back, a kiwi girl from West Auckland took a journey that
would change her world. The continuous footpath that spans 4,270 kilometres from the border of
Mexico up through California, Oregon, and Washington into Canada, is known as the Pacific
Crest Trail; a hike far more intimidating than any she’d done before.
28 minutes, Director: Allie Rood, NZ/USA. Nick Allen and Mark Heighton
go to Stewart Island in search of rock climbing. With little to no information about
climbing routes or rock quality, they embarked on what ended up being an adventure of
a lifetime. The crew flew into Ruggedy Beach and carried 40 kgs of gear each in hopes
of climbing on the Northern Slabs in the Ruggedy Range. They quickly realised the rock
was much bigger than expected, but something much better lay just around the corner.
