Topic: Outdoor Adventure
Filmmaker/photographer Pete McBride and writer Kevin Fedarko set out on a 750-mile hike through the entire length of the Grand Canyon. More people have stood on the moon than have completed a continuous through hike of the Canyon! Witness their story of extreme physical hardship that stretches the bonds of friendship and a meditation on the timeless beauty of this sacred place. It is an urgent warning about the environmental dangers that are placing one of America’s greatest monuments in peril and a cautionary tale for our complex relationship with the natural world.
“Into the Canyon is more than just a beautiful and breathtaking outdoor adventure film, though it is that. The film raises questions that are critical and fundamental for understanding our place as humans in the world, questions that we all need to sit with.”
Michael Paul Nelson, Professor of Environmental Ethics and Philosophy, Oregon State University, Co-editor, Moral Ground: Ethical Action for a Planet in Peril
Awards: Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Nature Documentary, Grand Prize, Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival, Best Feature, Banff Mountain Film Festival, Director’s Award, Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival and twelve other festivals.
