Brave

Featuring Maria Granberg 15 min

Maria Granberg is a professional mountain athlete mostly known for attempting to climb 8,000 m + mountains without supplemental oxygen and for becoming the second Swedish woman to summit Mt. Everest from the North face. With a background in the behavioral science field, Maria has developed a unique toolkit that not only gives her a fresh perspective but also serves as a humbling and hopeful reminder of what it means to be human. Produced by the team behind Open shop, Victor Annerstål and Martin Sandin, this film paints an intimate portrait of Maria as she prepares for the Manaslu ascent, and offers insights into what it really takes to live a life of extremes.

Journey deep into the heart of the largest glacier in continental Europe, with its sprawling valleys, majestic glacier arms, and towering ice falls.

Ambivalent

Featuring Robert Robertsen and Eirik Verlo 11 min

The definition of ambivalence is having mixed feelings or ideas about something or someone. That’s exactly how skier Robert Robertsen and snowboarder Eirik Verlo felt as they approached yet another season of freeriding in the northern part of Norway—an area known for great freeskiing, but also many deaths by avalanche. In this film, the duo reflect on their past experiences and question whether or not they can justify taking the risk. Eirik has already been first on the scene of numerous avalanches, and Robert is shocked to realize that this is the reality of freeskiing. We follow their reflections through ups and downs in the mountains. They have to turn around several times due to sketchy conditions, but on their very last adventure of the season they finally find what they have been looking for: perfect snow, sun, and great comradeship.

15 Peaks

Featuring Tom-Oliver Hedvall 15 min

Inspired by Nimsdai Purge’s 14 peaks (over 8,000m) project, Tom-Oliver Hedvall and his best buddies decided to create their own adventure. But instead of taking on the highest peaks in the world, they would look to their own backyard. In Jämtland, there are 15 peaks above 1,500 meters. Tom-Oliver and his friends did the highest peaks in their district in one week—in total, walking a double Vasaloppet and more than one Mount Everest from sea level in vertical meters. But the most rewarding part of the whole adventure was realizing their ultimate goal: having an awesome time together with minimum climate impact.

Meta

Featuring Maria Granberg 17 min

On June 28, 1870, Meta Brevoort attempted to summit la Meije in the Dauphine Alps, but failed. Her party chose to summit Doigt de Dieu, not realising that the true summit, Grand Pic de la Meije, was slightly higher. Despite this, they couldn't cross the impassable ridge separating them from the true summit. Still, summiting Doigt de Dieu was remarkable and Meta was a true pioneer in mountaineering, defying gender and social norms. Maria Granberg follows in her footsteps, aiming to learn more about the easily overlooked history of this incredible woman by climbing la Meije.
