THE EUROPEAN OUTDOOR FILM TOUR 2022
Åtte filmer fulle av eventyr, mot og mangfold.
Eventyrene lokker over hele kloden. Om de så befinner seg på Afrikas savanner eller nord for polarsirkelen er våre eventyrere ustoppelige. Hvordan er det å være en del av klatremiljøet for en døv person? Hvor langt oppleves 80 kilometer når du har lagt distansen bak deg 51 dager på rad? Hva tenker den kvinnelige kajakkpadleren når hun forbigår de mannlige konkurrentene i de ville fjellstrykene? I hvilken grad åpner verden seg for en 16 år gammel zambisk gutt med en sykkel? Og hvilke kreative løsninger må man komme opp med om man vil ut i verden for å klatre i fjerne fjellformasjoner, men er tvunget til å holde seg hjemme på grunn av lockdown?
Alle disse spørsmålene får du svar på under European Outdoor Film Tour. Årets program består av åtte filmer som lar deg se mange nye helter og heltinner, samt to velkjente fjes, på det store lerretet, i en mix du aldri før har sett maken til!

Fresh air: Eight movies that breathe adventure, courage and diversity
Adventure beckons everywhere. Whether in Africa’s savannah or north of the Arctic Circle, our protagonists are unstoppable! How does the climbing scene feel as a deaf person? How far is 80 kilometers when you walk it on the 51st day in a row? What does a female kayaker think when she outruns the male competition in roaring mountain rivers? How much freedom does a bicycle afford a 16-year-old Zambian? And what if it’ slockdown and you’re not allowed to travel to remote rock faces?
EOFT 2022 will provide the answers to all of these questions! This year’s program consists of a total of eight films, bringing many new heroes and heroines as well as two familiar acquaintances to the big screen — a combination never before seen by the outdoor community!

Deaf climber and outdoor advocate Sonya Wilson works topromote inclusion and access for the Deaf community. “Nature doesn't make demands,” Sonya says. “She simply accepts us as we are”. Sonya is conveying that sense of freedom to her community — to Deaf children in particular — through her climbing retreats in Joshua Tree.

In the midst of the pandemic, Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker embark on one of the most bizarre projects of their careers.

GIFT OF THE BIKE – A ZAMBIAN CYCLE STORY
Sometimes a single object can change an entire life. For Gift Puteho, it was his father’s bicycle. After his first wobbly laps, it was clear to him that there is no better sport!
