Red Bull Media House and Freeride Entertainment combine high tech film, sound and end-of-the-earth settings, on a stunning quest alongside a cast of the world’s premier mountain biking adventurers.
It was announced today by Red Bull Media House and Freeride Entertainment that Where The Trail Ends, a ground-breaking mountain biking adventure film, will have its Canadian premiere at two event screenings in Toronto and Vancouver. With director Jeremy Grant and several riders in attendance, the Toronto premiere will take place on October 28th at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. The Vancouver premiere will follow shortly after on November 9th at the Vogue Theatre.
A new era of action sports films in the 21st century will spin further into the future with the release of Where The Trail Ends this fall. Produced by Red Bull Media House, in association with Freeride Entertainment, the movie is set to be a global cycling spectacle unlike anything ever captured on film. A teaser for the film and behind-the-scenes footage is available to view below:
Where The Trail Ends
is the culmination of three years of travel to the farthest reaches of the globe, including the Andean foothills of Salta, Argentina, China’s challenging Gobi Desert, Nepal’s near-secret Mustang region, the unexplored shorelines of British Columbia’s Fraser River and Virgin, Utah – big mountain freeriding’s birthplace, and punishing proving grounds.Where The Trail Ends
’ storyline follows professional mountain bikers Darren Berrecloth, Cameron Zink, Kurt Sorge, James Doerfling, Andreu Lacondeguy and another half dozen of the world’s top freeriders in an extraordinary chronicle of exploration, chaos and culture, set amongst some of the globe’s most harrowing and remote natural landscapes.
Inspired by Red Bull Media House’s extraordinary The Art Of Flight
snowboarding documentary, this is the soul and science of exploration as defined by two wheels. “The experience of making the film is something viewers will see first-hand. It’s the story of what it took to get there. And what it was like to experience the ultimate ride,” says rider Darren Berrecloth, considered one of the world’s preeminent freeriders. “We went into regions almost entirely unknown. We often never knew whether we’d succeed or fail, or worse.”
Freeride’s crews created the project’s remarkably compelling tone, footage and narrative using the highest performance tools in film as well as an array of transportation and perspectives, from jet boats, helicopters and fixed wing aircraft, to the riders themselves. Partnerships with Contour
, hands-free HD video cameras, and Specialized Bikes were vital to the project’s success.
[Quoten]This is a story coming from the riders themselves, it’s authentic and innovative, the way it should be. - Geoff Rogers, Specialized Sports Marketing Manager
