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.
