Mountainfilm at Telluride begins on May 28. This year’s showdown includes Eastern Rises, Ben Knight and Travis Rummel’s awaited Kamchatka film—a mash-up of wicked trouting and Big Foot’s biopic. Also featured is Chris Malloy’s 180 South, retracing the 1968 Mt. Fitzroy adventures of Yvon Chouinard, Doug Tompkins, and Lito Tejada-Flores.
From The Conversation: “Now that we’re in the countdown to this year’s festival, we’re sure you want to check out what films we’ll be featuring. Instead of just listing them, we’ll be posting trailers to selected films each Tuesday and Thursday, so keep an eye out for what’s to come!”
