CHASING GHOSTS

DIRECTOR: Eric Bendick

In their quest to identify the pollinator of the ghost orchid, a team spent three summers standing waist-deep in alligator- and snake-laden water, swatting air blackened by mosquitoes, and climbing to nausea-inducing heights. They came away with an even deeper love for Florida's wildest wetlands - and with surprising revelations that may help to conserve the endangered orchid and its shrinking home.

CONCEPCION

DIRECTOR: Cameron Maier

British climber Hazel Findlay heads to Utah for a face-off with an immaculate 230-foot splitter crack; Concepción (5.13), located in the southwest desert near Moab. “I guess I got my ass kicked a little bit,” says Hazel. “Performance anxiety comes because you put too much pressure on yourself. But if you have low expectations, then there’s no pressure anymore.” Ironically, as Hazel points out in this film, success happens when “You just kind of let yourself climb."

RUNNING THOUGHTS

DIRECTOR: Fitz Cahall

Sometimes, an hour is all you get. Often, an hour is all you need. In those 60 minutes, for every question that gets answered, a new one gets asked. Internal yarns are spun. Knots get untangled, and everything makes sense - even if you forget it all by the time you get home. Join trail runners Perry Cohen, Junko Kazukawa and José González to hear what goes through their heads as they run through nature.
