180° South: Conquerors of the Useless
A Film Inspired by the Legendary 1968 Trip by Yvon Chouinard & Doug Tompkins
After seeing footage of a 1968 roadtrip made by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard and friends from Southern California to Patagonia, a young American adventurer named Jeff Johnson spent the next 10 years dreaming of following their footsteps. In 2007, Jeff dropped everything to finally fulfill his dream. Setting sail on what would become a six-month traverse of North and South America, he hoped to find unclimbed mountains and unridden waves. But as he traveled, his eyes opened to the environmental disasters that threaten these special places, and those who are working to save them.
Join us at Patagonia for this free event. Part of our Adventure Film Series.

Hari Rai is a 17-year-old student who lives in a small Himalayan village in Nepal. To support himself and pay for his education, he works as a porter. In this documentary, Hari is hired to carry a Coca-Cola refrigerator to a repair shop, and the footage follows him through Nepal’s stunning mountainscape—past tourist-filled hot springs, Buddhist temples, herds of goats and small villages. As we follow Hari on his journey, we discover his inner life, his thoughts, hopes and dreams and we also get to know the culture and the local people’s way of life in this region. We learn about their relation with the most important aspects of their lives: family, nature and religion. The four-day transport is a poignant portrait of child labor in modern-day Nepal.
Director/Producer: Lucian & Natasa Muntean
