    On $5 movie night, saw Infinite Storm with a hiking buddy in an otherwise empty movie theater. I will say this, if you intend to see it, see it in a theater and go immediately, because it might not be around by the weekend.

    If we don't support movies of this kind when they come out, producers won't be as willing to risk making them in the future.

    No great loss IMO.

    Just got back from Infinite Storm. This movie was WAY better than I expected.
    I thought it was excellent.
    It is thought-provoking regarding a lot of concepts like - how do you rescue someone who doesn’t want to be rescued?
    …And that could apply to a lot of different life scenarios like helping a loved one with drug addiction
    who doesn’t want to stop, etc….
    It raises questions like: how far do you sacrifice to care about someone’s life, even when they don’t care about their own?
    And what is the beauty that can come out of the ashes of grief, hardship and struggle?

    I thought the lead actress was excellent, so genuine and real.
    My only complaint is that it wasn’t filmed in New Hampshire!!!!

    Apart from that though, it is well worth seeing and far better than some ratings and reviews I have seen. Awesome movie with a multitude of thought-provoking layers.

    There are some who might say if this movie hadn't been made, it would be no great loss, but SpencerVT, I agree with you, this was a fine movie that raises important questions for those of willing to ponder them.

    Renan is definitely one of the better cinematographers out there right now. His work on Mark Synott’s expedition to Everest a few years ago was outstanding so I would think “Sanctity of Space” has real potential. I like his documentary style and not over dramatization of non fiction which almost morphs into fiction. Here’s a link to The Everest video he did. https://youtu.be/8G0fNkk4g0A

    I agree. Renan's stuff is awesome. I follow him on Instagram and his photos and videos really capture a side of the outdoors, particularly the native cultures of the places they travel, that few others do. Top notch.

    Patagonia's films are universally fantastic. If you've never seen DamNation, a film about how dams damage rivers and the life that resides in them, it is a stunning achievement. Funny, poignant, great historic footage, and you learn a ton about salmon.
    https://youtu.be/laTIbNVDQN8

    Patagonia just dropped a new movie, Newtok: The Water is Rising, about an Alaskan shoreline village that is forced to relocate after the water literally eats the land away.
    https://youtu.be/_QNYQfdVEOk

    I had heard about this village, but actually to see the before and after, the land literally disappearing into the water, and the logistics of moving a village that is accessed only by water, is so fascinating. The native tribe was nomadic until forced onto that location so their children could be educated, and Newtok was the first community to be displaced by rising waters. The directors did a magnificent job of showing the beauty of a community that is so completely different from any lived experience I myself, growing up in New England, have ever had. It's a movie to watch just to be taken to an Alaskan village where they still speak in their native tongue. That alone is worth the watch. These are people who rely on the sea and the surroundings for the vast majority of their food, and their love of the land shines through, without any preachiness. It is a very powerful movie, and beautiful. I love being taken somewhere else to get a sense of life in a place, and this 1.5 hour movie does just that. Really, really good!

    "Buried" has just been released by The Dirtbag Diaries.
    https://vimeo.com/762736662/71a81aea0d

    It tells the story of the 1982 Alpine Resort avalanche.

    I haven't witnessed a story this gripping in ages! For those interested in avalanches, I highly recommend.



    Brian

    p.s. The movie is supposed to be free through November 13, 2022. There may be a fee after that. It's worth the money.

    Inspiring.

    May we be as strong as Anna in a seemingly hopeless situation.

    I forgot to mention. If you like Buried, Fitz Cahill of the Dirtbag Diaries has a quite interesting interview with the two directors at:
