180 Degrees South film screening presented by Sun Valley Museum of Art

FILM: 180 Degrees South (First Showing)

Thursday, November 19, 2020 - 4:00 PM

This gorgeous, historic, and inspiring film from director & surfer Chris Malloy documents the adventures of surfer and climber Jeff Johnson as he retraces the epic 1968 journey of his heroes Yvon Chouinard (rock climbing legend and founder of Ventura-based Patagonia) and Doug Tompkins (founder of North Face and Esprit), on which they drove, mountain climbed and surfed their way to Chilean Patagonia. Jeff encounters big surf, snowy mountains, a dangerous ocean crossing, pulp mills, cowboys, dams and more on his way to climb Cerro Corcovado in Patagonia. Jeff's life takes a turn when he meets up in a rainy hut with Chouinard and Tompkins who, once driven purely by a love of climbing and surfing, now value above all the experience of raw nature and have come to Patagonia to use their influence to help protect it. The film is a road trip movie, a historic document, and an environmental call to arms, but mostly a meditation on what matters most in life –staying true to one's own vision and values.

Running time: 1 hour 25 minutes
