The Telluride Mountain Film Festival takes several mountain-filmed themes on tour across the United States. The selection includes 3 short films of interest to fans of Latino Cinema:
55 Hours in Mexico (Mexico/USA, 15 mins)
Fly to Veracruz, rent a car, climb the third-highest peak in North America, ski down and return to work Monday - all over the course of a weekend. How hard could it be? 55 Hours in Mexico explores the limits of the weekend warrior and dives deep into type 2 fun with four friends who take off to Mexico for an outlandish adventure on the continent's highest volcano, Orizaba.
Force (Argentina/USA, 19 mins)
Patagonia is home to jagged granite spires with some of the most technical climbing in the world and fierce storms that can literally bring you to your knees. These qualities might keep others away, but for climber and photographer Mikey Schaefer they fuel a deep love for the place. Schaefer believes the more you get to know something, the more you care about it. But it takes time and commitment.
The Fisherman's Son (USA, 25 mins)
Exploring the Chilean surfer Ramón Navarro’s life in depth, following the trajectory of a boy who came from a fishing family, one of many that have long earned their livelihood from the bounty of the sea. Only this fisherman's son found his passion riding the breaks just beyond his front door.
