EOFT - PROGRAMME

Le Minimaliste – An Himalayan Adventure

Le Minimaliste – An Himalayan Adventure

The French adventurer Eliott Schonfeld crosses the Himalayas from west to east. Far off the beaten track, his path leads him through the wide valleys of Ladakh and over barren passes and glaciers to Nepal. Seven-thousand-meter peaks are always within view, but people and villages are a rare sighting. Eliott's only companion on this lonely trek is his horse, Robert.

While the snow-covered and icy passages become a serious challenge for his four-legged friend, Eliott himself acutely feels, during the bitterly cold nights, that he may have spared too much on his equipment. Still, the minimalist adventurer explores his limits along the way and eventually renounces the last amenities of civilization: tent, sleeping bag, and lighter. How little is just enough?

The Movement

The Movement

THE MOVEMENT celebrates the oldest form of movement: running. This is what we are built for, not sitting or standing. A goal and a pair of shoes (optional) are all that's needed to bring even the most diverse group of people together. No matter how old we are, what language we speak, or what skin colour we have, running democratizes us and our surroundings.

We can conquer new terrain and trails far into the backcountry and rediscover urban environments. THE MOVEMENT shows the different ways in which the sport is experienced and what it moves in us.


Return to Earth

Return to Earth

The modern world has made us more and more disconnected and distracted from the things that really matter. Living in the moment typically isn't part of the conversation when talking about mountain biking, but these uncomplicated two-wheeled machines can help us get back to a simpler life.

In RETURN TO EARTH, Brett Rheeder, Casey Brown, Matt Hunter, Joey Schusler and many more transport viewers to a feeling of flow and illustrate the many ways riding a bike can immerse you in the present moment.


Africa Riding: Karim

Africa Riding: Karim

Rwanda's capital, Kigali, is not a hotspot for roller skaters—at least not yet. There are no halfpipes and no graffiti artists here, and because the sport is still completely unknown, roller skater Abdul Karim Habyarimana is also a very rare sight, especially during his acrobatic skates when he casually overtakes cars on the open road.

Karim lives on eight wheels, an approach to life that he wants to bring to the next generation of skaters.


Zeppelin Skiing

Zeppelin Skiing

If you go freeriding via a Zeppelin, one thing you don't have to worry about is traffic. You should, however, make sure that you don't have a fear of heights!

Luckily, Stefan Ager, Andreas Gumpenberger, and Fabian Lentsch do not because they have to abseil a good 50 meters down from the safety of the airship's gondola onto a snowy summit. The three freeriders discover new routes, not just their first-ever approach but also on the descent they have been eagerly anticipating.


The Longest Hole

The Longest Hole

If you ask Adam Rolston and Ron Rutland, Mongolia is the most adventurous golf course on earth.

Together the pair sets out to hit a golf ball across the Mongolian plains. What sounds like a modern version of Sisyphus, proves to be a real test for the two men, who could hardly be more different. But then they are joined by a stray dog – could he be the missing link between them?
