In Constant Motion 
Run Time: 13 min

Adam Campbell’s life has revolved around motion. As one of the world’s top ultra runners, his mantra has been simple: ‘If you’re not moving, you’re dead’. This life of movement came to an abrupt halt on August 30, 2016, when he experienced a near-fatal accident while attempting a traverse through Roger’s Pass in BC, with runners Nick Elson and Dakota Jones. Grabbing a loose rock hold, Adam tumbled nearly 100-feet, sustaining four broken vertebrae, a crushed iliac crest and deep lacerations to the bone.

Having a body now supported with titanium rods and screws, Adam begins to question the integrity of his athletic future.

Ten months later, while searching for the athlete he once was, Adam finds himself at the starting line of the Hardrock 100, a hundred mile ultra race he medalled at in the past. It’s within these hundred miles that Adam discovers what he’s looking for won’t be found on the results board.

Changing Course
Run Time: 8 min

Clare Gallagher was headed toward medical school, until she realized the path everyone else wanted her to take wouldn’t make her happy. So she took one step back, 100 miles forward, and went in a new direction.

Qamaniq
Run Time: 20 min

In August 2017, a team of three women aged 25 to 30 embarked on a quest to discover their own boundaries in an immense, wild and remote territory. They covered 100 km in a few days, through the Kuururjuaq National Park, along Mont d'Iberville and crossing the famous Koroc River; a journey to deepen their understanding of the culture and spirit of the Inuit people by immersing themselves in ancestral lands.

Euphoria
Run Time: 20 min

Euphoria, indescribable adventure was filmed at Manu National Park, deep in the Amazon Rainforest, an unspoiled expanse of boiling jungle and breath-taking cloud forests running from the Andes mountains to the Madre de Dios River. Its lowlands are only accessible by boat and its impenetrable nature has been both reasons why so many are attracted to its dark undergrowth and the reason it has remained so well preserved.

Best Foot Forward
Run Time: 29 min

Michael Milton grew up into a skiing family, and after losing his leg to cancer at the age of nine he was determined to ski again. Michael later became the most successful Australian Paralympic Athlete in the Winter Games, winning 6 Gold, 3 Silver and 2 Bronze medals. Always setting himself new challenges, Michael tried his hand at speed skiing and clocked a staggering 213.65km/hr to become the fastest skier with a disability in the world. In May 2017, Michael set himself a new challenge to tackle a distance race -- the Ultra-Trail Australia 50km race in the Blue Mountains. It's tough terrain when you're running on crutches but Michael is putting his best foot forward.

The Musician
