From the creators of the award winning film “All.I.Can”, Sherpas Cinema is proud to present their newest feature film, Into The Mind.
With stunning cinematography and groundbreaking storytelling techniques, the Sherpas blur the lines between dream state and reality, and immerse you into the mind of a common skier as he attempts to climb and ski the ultimate mountain. Innovative athlete segments are actually a glimpse into his dreamscape, each one harboring messages that help inform our hero’s current, real-life choices. As you experience the majesty of Alaska, Bolivia, the Himalaya and beyond, Into the Mind paints a philosophical portrait of human kind. How do we balance risk versus reward? Why are we inspired to rise to the challenges in our lives and what do we learn on this journey to attain them?

In summer 2011, Outdoor Research athlete Kyle Dempster took off on his bike across Kyrgyzstan with a couple mostly-accurate maps, a trailer full of climbing gear, and a vocabulary of 10 Kyrgyz words. He spent two months pedaling and pushing the bike more than 1200 km on roads of variable states of neglect, wading through wild rivers, dealing with corrupt military checkpoint staff, and soloing a handful of unclimbed alpine rock and mixed routes. He recorded the journey, his camera his only partner, friend, and sometimes the only receiving end of his conversations for days at a time.
In 2013, Kyle’s self-shot footage of his journey in Kyrgyzstan made it to the desk of filmmakers Fitz Cahall and Austin Siadak, who were asked to look at the footage and see if there might be enough to chop together a 4-minute climbing film. They saw a lot more potential in it, and turned it into the 25-minute “The Road From Karakol”, which debuted at the 5Point Film Festival and took home the Best In Fest award.
Adventure and insight through experience—this film is food for the soul!
They say ‘fortune favors the bold’—and today, a brave new generation of explorers are leading the way. Whilst methods may have changed, insatiable curiosity and the spirit of adventure remain at the heart of discovery.
In this edition we find out what inspires a modern explorer, how the role is defined by the new generation and their hope for the future. Taken on a journey of culture and conservation, our modern explorers share their knowledge and latest research.
We also look at how technology is expanding the scope of exploration, allowing us to peer ever deeper into the mysterious forces governing our world. From uncovering the secrets of a Hidden Universe to deciphering the navigational cues encoded in the dance of a honeybee. Revelations in science are exposing the genius of nature and the marvels within—insights which have the potential to advance our thinking, and offer a blueprint to engineer a sustainable future.
I hope you enjoy exploring the fortunes of our brave new world!
Seek Adventure. Save Wildlife.
