Tamara: At The Peak of Emotions
In 2012, Tamara Lunger saw the 8,611-meter summit of K2 for the first time. The sight of it was awe-inspiring, not least because K2 is considered the most dangerous of the 8,000-meter peaks: More than 80 climbers have lost their lives here. Still, in 2014, the 28-year-old made her way back to Pakistan with alpinist Klaus Gruber to take on the biggest challenge of her mountaineering career. Between fear, passion and happiness—this is a portrait of a woman who lives and loves extremes.

Burn It Down: Fast Descents in Downhill Paradise
The winding roads of the western Sierra Nevada are seemingly endless. They are perfect for James Kelly, and there is no stopping the young longboarder when he’s descending into the valley. Kelly rips down the asphalt at 70 km/h, blasting through curves without brakes. BURN IT DOWN is a breath-taking ride that always takes the racing line.

Unbranded: Across the Usa on Wild Mustangs
Childhood dreams often drive the most unusual and monumental achievements. Ben Masters’ dream was to ride horseback across his native United States, a 3,000-mile adventure through the American West from Mexico to Canada. But it wouldn’t be on just on any horse. Ben and his friends Thomas Glover, Ben Thamer and Jonny Fitzsimons wanted to do the trip on adopted wild mustangs that they had broken in themselves. Riding narrow desert trails, through the Grand Canyon, and traversing the wide-open plains, the dream became an extraordinary journey through America’s vanishing wilderness.

Unreal: Escape on Two Wheels, Fleeing Reality
Professional mountain biker Brandon Semenuk found it – that other world where endless singletrack trails snake through the lush green alpine landscape. It’s a world beyond concrete high-rises, a world without limits or deadlines, where Anthill Films has made the unreal a reality. Racing herds of horses, jumping glaciers and landing the biggest front flip in MTB history, UNREAL is the mountain biking film of the year that’s knocking the world off its axis. It’s time to get off the beaten path.

Dani Arnold on the Matterhorn
When you are the fastest in the world, your only competition is your own head. Dani Arnold breaks one speed record after another. In 2011 he took a full 20 minutes off Ueli Steck’s best time for the Eiger North Face. Now he’s going after the Matterhorn. But what makes Dani Arnold tick? A fascinating glimpse into the psyche of an exceptional athlete.
