Eagerly Awaiting 180 Degrees South: Conquerors of the Useless

Posted by Patrick James

After the jump, check out the awesome trailer for 180 Degrees South, a film I've been dying to see since last year. Some background:
In 1968 Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins set out to surf, ski and climb their way to Patagonia. The wild places they found later motivated them to protect the environment. Inspired by this journey, Jeff Johnson and Woodshed Films set sail on a voyage to South America to climb a mythical peak called Corcovado with Chouinard and Tompkins.
The movie premiered last month at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, and will soon embark on a theatrical tour. Check here for dates.Thumbnail image via Cold Splinters.
