A Few Steps Further
Runtime: 13 minutes
Directed by: Erik Petersen
When Kevin Davis first began running he was overweight and out of shape. He tried, but failed to finish a 1-mile run. Now, years later, he runs 100-mile races. He uses that fitness to support his other passion: backcountry hunting. In 2017, Davis was selected to run the Hardrock 100. Two months later he attempts a backcountry mountain goat hunt in the wilds of Alaska. The film looks at the crossover between endurance sports and hunting, and the need for public lands and wild places to do both.

La Barkley – Sans Pitié
Presented in French with English Subtitles
Runtime: 18 minutes

The Barkley Marathons is, for many, the toughest race in the world. In a remote corner of mountains in Tennessee, between former coal mines and an abandoned high-security prison, Lazarus Lake has been organizing this underground event for 30 years, which is both ultra-trail and Orienteering. A moving course, in the middle of the woods, without a precise path, five loops of about thirty-five kilometers to be completed in less than sixty hours. Since 1987, over 1,000 participants, only fifteen have finished ... "My idea was that only 1% of people can overcome it," says the organizer.
