Adaptive (short film) Jim Ewing, a Sterling Rope engineer and below-the-knee amputee, enlists professional climber, Maureen Beck, born without her left hand, to attempt the first all-adaptive ascent of the über classic and deeply remote Lotus Flower Tower (5.10+) in Canada’s Cirque of the Unclimbables.
The Weight of Water is a story of a blind man balancing fear in the chaos of kayaking whitewater rapids… not to mention drowning, and the powerful desire to be free from a prison of darkness. He embarks, alone in his own boat, into the home of the most iconic whitewater in the world, the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Directed by: Michael Brown.
