Overview

Synopsis

Amazonia Vertical
The true majesty of nature serves as the focal point of this documentary following Becko Ondrejovic's quest to climb Auyan Tepui, the highest table mountain in the Amazon. It's a mysterious place that the natives believe to be inhabited by demons, though not even fear of hellish reprisal is enough to dissuade Ondrejovic from attempting to ascent this virgin wall. After completing the first complete traverse of Auyan Tepui, Ondrejovic recruits some of his closest friends to travel back to the table mountain, study it's vertical lines, and experience the adventure of a lifetime by discovering a wondrous lost world. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Omo: A Journey to the Primaeval Age
Though some anthropologists and students of ancient history believe that mankind first took root in the fertile crescent of Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, still others concur that the earliest homo sapiens emerged in Ethiopia, around the area that contains the Omo River. Such is the thesis of this documentary program by Pavol Barabas. Believing that the current tribes inhabiting the Omo region might be able to provide key insights into mankind's most primeval history, Barabas and five others undertook a wild and adventuresome journey into that region; boarding a raft, they hit the waters of the Omo and braved all sorts of dangers, including tumultuous rapids and the presence of crocodiles and hippopotami, in order to meet the Omo tribes. The documentary Omo: A Journey to the Primaeval Age chronicles that amazing journey. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Arctic Extreme: 118 Days in the Captivity of Ice
For many, it marked one of the last Holy Grails of late 20th century earthbound exploration: the elusive goal of traversing the Arctic Ocean via the North Pole and using that path to make one's way from Russia to Canada. Though long-deemed close to impossible, in the late 1990s four explorers (two Russians and two Slovaks) dared to take a valiant stab at it. They began making their way across the tundra, sans any aviation support, and started at the Severnaya Zemlya - itself regarded as a particularly lethal spot, widely known for its polar bears and debilitating drift. Exactly two and a half months (75 days) later, on May 8, 1998, the men finally reached the North Pole - but that only marked the beginning. They would soon be forced to counter such obstacles as massive drifts, wildly unpredictable weather, and vast expanses of territory sans any visible land, with only water in view. The nonfiction film 118 Days in Captivity of Ice relays this amazing and harrowing tale as it initially unfolded. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
