Program Utehelg 2018
18–20 maj 2018 arrangerar Utemagasinet UTEHELG på Skeviks Gård – Naturnära beläget i Värmdö skärgård, endast 20 minuter från Stockholm. UTEHELG bjuder i tre dagar in familjer som gillar äventyr eller är nyfikna på naturen och allt den har att erbjuda.
Med Uthelg vill Utemagasinet skapa en mötesplats för alla; nybörjare som inbitna friluftsfantaster. Ett sätt att träffas, byta erfarenheter och kunskaper – och inte minst upptäcka variationen i friluftslivet. Fredag och lördag kväll kommer vi på Pathfinder att visa film från filmfestivalen Banff Mountain Film Festival
Filmprogram vid Utehelg
Loved By All: The Story of Apa Sherpa
Director: Eric Crosland
Producer: Malcolm Sangster
Production Company: Sherpas Cinema
Length: 14 Mins
Apa Sherpa has climbed Mount Everest 21 times, but he wouldn't wish this upon anybody. Having grown up in the remote Khumbu region of Nepal, Apa was forced to leave school and work as a porter at the age of 12. For Nepal’s rural people, the income earned as a high altitude porter conflicts with the dreams made possible only through education and knowledge.
Country: United States
Director: Max Lowe, Forest Woodward and Charles Post
Advisory: Coarse Language
Length: 15 Mins
Each fall our skies fill with the wings of migrating raptors, a migration that relies on two hemispheres worth of wild and healthy ecosystems. Join ecologist and filmmaker, Charles Post, as he shines a light on the network of backcountry scientists and sentinels at the front lines of raptor conservation.
The Frozen Road
Country: United Kingdom
Director: Ben Page
Producer: Ben Page
Length: 24 Mins
Ben Page sought an adventure of perfect solitude in the Canadian Arctic. Yet, as he came to realize, the harsh truths of travelling in such a formidable environment were a long way from the romanticisms of a Jack London book.
Awards: Special Jury Mention (2017 Banff Mountain Film Competition)
There were a few excellent expedition films in the festival this year, some of which were recorded by film crews with extensive budgets and others that were smaller projects, filmed in the ‘self-shot style’ by the adventurers themselves. It is one of these smaller budget films that we would like to recognise with a special jury mention. On many occasions, the best scenes in adventure films are captured when things are going wrong, when times are tough. And so if you are self-shooting, particularly on a solo trip, it requires a huge amount of discipline and dedication to stop having your epic for a moment, get the camera out and then document the very epic you are having. To do that in a blizzard at minus 30 degrees Celsius is particularly impressive.
— Paul Diffley, jury member.
Have you ever been that little kid sitting in the back seat of your parents car, wishing you were somewhere else? So you imagine a skier on the side of the road, your fingers commanding back flips and roof drops, improbable rail slides and huge airs. Well what if your imagination came to life?
Awards: Best Film: Snow Sports (2017 Banff Mountain Film Competition)
For fanatics of winter sports, the first snow and turns of the winter always bring huge smiles to our faces, and have us giggling like little kids. This film can’t fail to make you smile. With very clever storytelling, hugely complex production and careful consideration of every small detail, it takes us into a world most of us have forgotten. A place where anything is possible, and the only limits are the limits of our mind.
— Katie Moore, jury member.
