Documentary Films featuring Action/Adventure in Lanesboro January 18


Fri, Jan 10th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Espen Fadnes is ‘wingsuit’ (sort of like a flying squirrel) world champion.

Sit back and experience big-screen action-packed adventure in films featuring everything from mountain bike jumps to Yosemite Valley rock climbing to Mexican jungle kayaking to extreme skiing to wingsuit flying. To kick off the 2014 Frozen River Film Festival (Winona, Minn.), preview events will be held again this year in Lanesboro, Minnesota. Lanesboro Arts Center will host two films and a reception on Saturday, January 18, 2014. “ADRENALINE SET” will be shown at 4 p.m., and “FIFTY LAKES ONE ISLAND” at 6:30 p.m. at the St. Mane Theatre. A reception will follow at the Lanesboro Arts Center galleries, from 8-9 p.m., featuring food and drinks, and jazz guitar music by Kelly Blau. An $8 ticket gets you in to one or both films, and the reception is free! Tickets are available in advance at Lanesboro Arts Center, 507-467-2446, or at the St. Mane Theatre 30 minutes prior to each film. The $8 ticket also gets you a warm-up: A free hot chocolate or coffee at Gil B’s Pizza & Sub Shoppe in downtown Lanesboro (they also have great homemade pizza, hamburgers and deli sandwiches and wraps).

“ADRENALINE SET” is an 83-minute set of six short films, featuring adventure and action-packed thrill rides in diverse extreme sports. 1) “LACON DE CATALONIA” (5 minutes) is directed by Niels Windfeldt. If your backyard mountain bike jumps require a five-story drop-in ramp for speed, chances are your name is Andreu Lacondeguy. The Antimedia film crew takes us to Lacondeguy’s training compound in the suburbs of Barcelona, Spain, for a day in the life of one of the best riders in the world. 2) “ROCK WALL CLIMBING” (4 minutes) is directed by Hal Clifford and Jason Houston. The star of this film is a quite normal, if beguiling, little girl. But she’s something of an authority on climbing, especially as it relates to climbing walls and, even more specifically, a wall in her garage that she helps to build. Her goal in climbing? To get to the top. 3) “HONNOLD 3.0” (32 minutes) is directed by Peter Mortimer and Josh Lowell. Just a few years ago, Alex Honnold was just another girlfriendless climber living in his van and roaming the Yosemite Valley. But he began putting up routes with increasing audacity and remarkable composure and then pulled off a couple of insanely bold free solo feats on Moonlight Buttress and Half Dome, shocking the climbing world and drawing media attention and public intrigue in equal measure. 4) “CASCADA” (8 minutes) i .....
