Film Descriptions

Faroes The Outpost Vol 2 (USA)
Director/Producer: Ben WeilandIn the middle of the North Atlantic, a cluster of 18 jagged islands comprises the Faroe Islands. Dane Gudauskas, Justin Quintal, Sam Hammer, Tyler Warren, Chris Burkard, and Ben Weiland attempt to unravel a coastline of dramatic fjords and plunging waterfalls in search of perfect waves. They spend two weeks exploring the islands, living in seaside cottages and becoming acquainted with stunning scenery and the strange and ancient customs of a nation founded by vikings.

Bear Island (Norway)
Director/Producer: Inge Wegge
Three brothers on cross country skis in a white, barren landscape. Each has a sled in tow with a surfboard perched atop. The snow whips them as they set up camp in preparation for the day ahead. The next morning, they hit the virgin waves where no one has surfed before. But one brother must stay ashore, vigilant, poised, with a rifle should Bjørnøya's natural predator, the Polar Bear emerge.
