The Weight of Water

Michael Brown

The Weight of Water is the story of a blind adventurer taking on an absurdly improbable challenge, kayaking the Grand Canyon. He desires the elusive state of being that so many of us seek, to be engaged in the present moment.

"It's so hard to be fully in the moment because there's so much fear, there's so much anxiety, it's like a person looking through a window at an experience rather than being in the experience." -- Erik Weihenmayer.

The A.O.

Jochen Schmoll

Adam Ondra is one of the most successful and versatile sport climbers of our time. He successfully climbed the most difficult
route in the world, now called Silence, and established a new level
of difficulty—9c. The Czech climber has also shown what he can do when it comes to big wall climbing; he ascended the Dawn Wall in just eight days—on his very first trip to Yosemite. His strong, lean body seems to effortlessly transcend gravity. But is it simply Adam’s muscle power and endurance that enables him to conquer the most difficult routes? Or is it his mental strength that drives him climb an 8a while blindfolded? We find out more about the forces that drive this climbing talent to new heights in The A.O.

8000+

Antoine Girad, Christian Schmidt

In July 2016, the paraglider Antoine Girard set off on a three-week hike-and- y tour to explore the Karakorum mountains in Pakistan— alone. From the town of Skardu, he heads for the highest peaks of the Karakorum mountain range. The Frenchman has already twice failed in his attempts to climb the 8,051-meter-high Broad Peak and paraglide from the summit down into the valley. Now, his hope is that the upwinds will carry him and his chute to the summit—and possibly beyond. If he succeeds, he will set a new altitude record in paragliding, but the air is thin between the 8,000-meter peaks, and take-offs and landings are extremely tricky. Especially when you only have one person to rely on—yourself.
