    I was hoping "Mile, Mile and Half" would be on Netflix. It isn't, although I'm able to download it from my local public library, so all good!

    Netflix has "Finding Traction" about Nikki Kimball's Long Trail run. Haven't seen it, but it's now on my list.

    Valley Uprising was a simply wonderful movie!

    I finally got a chance to see this. Wow.

    Highly recommended.

    Mile mile and a half is on “starz” right now. I’m watching it. If you have “ xfinity” it’s free till the end of the month. You can also record it.

    I just watched "Finding Traction" and really enjoyed it. Very introspective and inspiring. It's streaming on Amazon Prime now.

    I finally got around to seeing DamNation. A+ movie, all around. Following up on that is Artifishal, which came out last year. Both are made by Patagonia, with one focusing on the damage done by large dams, and the latter on the damage done by fisheries. Both are free on Patagonia's YouTube channel.

    The producers do a really fine job of balancing the disturbing with the positive, and the cinematography is phenomenal. Makes me want to go out and buy a fishing pole. I highly recommend both.

    FWIW, All of the Banff Mountain Film Festival films for this past year are available for free here:

    I've been working my way through them while in quarantine. Most are amazing!

    Banff's movies have been a wonderful feast during my work shutdown.

    For those with daughters especially, Deer139 is a fun movie. It's not an epic adventure, just a small one, which makes the movie approachable. Three women track a mule deer from its winter grounds to where the herd goes in the summer. All-female cast. Funny at times.

    That's how the list has been described, but it's not...it's a list of all Banff films from any year that are available for free, so it's not including everything from this year (the 2019 festival and 2020 tour). For instance, Brian's rec of Deer139 isn't on the list. Good stuff to watch, nonetheless.

    Thanks for the clarification. Now I get to watch more films!

    Just saw an ad for "Barbarian Utopia," which seems to focus heavily on interviewing AT thru-hikers.

    80% of reviewers on Amazon give it four or five stars.

    Bought it and it was pretty enjoyable. Considering buying it was 2x the rental fee, if at some point I have scouts and leaders watch it or I watch it again, it will be worth buying.i
    Have fun & be safe

    There is no shortage of AT documentaries following this formula on youtube for free. Many with superior production quality.
