Matthias “Super Frenchie” Giraud is passionate about adventure sports. Although he’s best known for his daring ski-BASE jumps, he also loves ski-mountaineering, surfing, and wing-suiting. For him these activities are not about cheap thrills. This drive for physical accomplishment and love of nature is central to his existence.
In this meditative film, written by Matthias and directed by award-winning filmmaker Chase Ogden, Matthias explains his discilplined approach to adventure sports and why the term “adrenaline junkie” is so innacurate.

It is often said that the hardest part of any adventure is getting out the door. Planning and packing are tedious and time consuming. But the moment you cross over the threshold from the distractions of the real world to the freedom of the hills, everything seems to just fall into place.
Said no mother ever.
Follow professional skiers and mothers Tessa Treadway and Izzy Lynch as they carry the load of loss, life changing events, and the love of their children into the mountains where they find the moments of peace, growth and healing that help them carry on.

Three friends venture into wild Siberia to climb in a unique arena of granite towers and walls jutting out of the stark tundra. The climbers are in heaven with the abundance of unclimbed rock. But their adventure becomes a challenge as they struggle with Russian red tape, the weather, differing motivations, and whether they’re drinking real vodka! When winter arrives early, they nearly give up all hope of further climbing - but then how motivated do you need to be to climb in a Siberian summer?
THIS IS BETH

Beth’ takes an intimate look beneath the forward facing success of her career, diving into Beth’s
grapple with body image and cruel self-talk, and celebrating how she transformed this dynamic
to rediscover the love of her sport and herself.

Remote islands. Sheep. Questionable weather. New Zealand and the Faroe Islands have a lot in common, but they couldn't be further apart. Kiwi climbers, Jack, Jase, and Dave, have been enticed by a Faroese friend to his faraway homeland for a gnarly rock climbing mission: to climb a new route on a 300m high rocky claw, named Trollfinger. Shrouded in legends, high seas make it a challenge to reach its base. After multiple attempts, the team is beaten down, physically and emotionally. They have one more chance, and they give it everything.
