E.O.F.T. 19/20: Best of
The best films of the European Outdoor Film Tour 19/20 in one thrilling program.
Eliott Schonfeld crosses the Himalayas from west to east with his horse, Robert. While the icy passages become a serious challenge for his four-legged friend, the minimalist adventurer himself suffers through some bitterly cold nights and thinks that perhaps he may have skimped too much on his equipment after all.
RETURN TO EARTH
Living in the moment typically isn't part of a conversation about mountain biking, but these two-wheeled machines can help us get back to a simpler life. In RETURN TO EARTH, the mountain bikers transport viewers to a feeling of flow and illustrate the many ways riding a bike can immerse you in the present moment.
FREEDOM TO ROAM
Sarah McNair-Landry is the winner of the first 21st Century Adventurer Award. Her homeland, Baffin Island, shaped her early life and made her the polar expert she is today. She was the youngest person ever to reach both polar ice caps on her own and has already completed five successful Greenland crossings.

THE LONGEST HOLE
Adam Rolston and Ron Rutland set out to hit a golf ball across the Mongolian plains. What sounds like a modern version of Sisyphus proves to be a real test for the two men, who could hardly be more different. But then they are joined by a stray dog – could he be the missing link between them?
