About the event

We follow Matty Hannon on an incredible solo adventure to surf the west coast of the Americas by motorbike from the top of Alaska to the tip of Patagonia. But deep in the wilderness - alone with the wolves and the bears – Matty’s plans unexpectedly fall to pieces. After losing everything and on the cusp of quitting, he meets the girl of his dreams, a permaculture farmer named Heather Hillier, who throws caution to the wind and sells her urban farm to buy a bike of her own. Together, riding south, the duo meet with Zapatista rebels, Amazonian shamans and Mapuche leaders whose salient words crack the adventurers’ cultural veneer. The theme of deep ecology underpins the entire film, visually communicated through exquisite cinematography and emotional verité sequences. Shot over 16 years, the result is an adventurous exposé on the more-than-human world, offering a physical and spiritual odyssey to better understand our place in Nature.
