Full Circle°

Posted by

Inspired by the adventures of Jeff Johnson in his 2010 epic tribute film to Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins, 180° South, Full Circle° follows ski mountaineers Erich Roepke, Stein Retzlaff, Rafael Pease, and Thor Retzlaff as they attempt the first ever ski descent of Volcán Corcovado in Chilean Patagonia. Faced with myriad challenges from leech-infested bogs to torrential rainstorms, simply reaching the base of the fabled peak is an adventure few undertake and even fewer complete. Yet as the team neared its goal, just a few pitches from the legendary summit, they encountered a new challenge: Could they reconcile with the purpose of adventure, and homage to their heroes, if the summit eluded them?

Directed by Erich Roepke (USA)
