It was twelve years after the divorce and Luke (Dariush Moslemi) hadn’t heard from his ex-wife (Kelly Morton) in over a year and when the phone rang that morning, he had no idea how that call would change his life. Luke and his daughter, Gabby (Anna Stranz), were all but strangers, but that phone call marked a new beginning and set them both off on an emotionally complicated journey of discovery. It’s a touching story of pain, hope, healing, and redemption, that every family should watch, and every father/daughter will cherish.
Set in Zanskar, Indian Himalaya, Shangku Shelter is a story of two decades of adventure, friendship and social change, driven by a love of skiing. Zanskar is a remote kingdom in the northwest Indian Himalaya, where local people are snow-bound for six months of the year. About 10,000 Zanskaris live in the isolated valley. In winter, mountain passes are blocked, the summer Jeep road closes and buses stop. Two decades ago, three friends founded a ski school – to enable winter travel in the valley, improve quality of life, and to encourage young people to stay in Zanskar by helping establish a culture of mountain sports. The film tells the story of this friendship, the ski school and the development of skiing in the area. Along the way a bigger question is raised.

New Zealand is the land of adventure and “Sky Piercer” sees World Champion athletes Xavier De le Rue, Nadine Wallner and local Sam Smoothy take on the iconic peak of Mt. Cook. With three weeks to prepare and scope the West face, Xavier and Nadine are confident that they will have the opportunity to tackle the mountain, but local Sam knows that weather in New Zealand is not so kind. As they wait for a weather window the trio adventure around the south island, surfing in the Caitlins, climbing and biking in Lake Wanaka, diving for Crayfish on the West Coast, bush-wacking and climbing to lines high in the alpine but the time is passing. With a short pocket of weather opening on the final days of their stay, the team head out in gliders to get a good look at the face and define their lines. From the air the face glistens, hinting at the ice below, most people tell them they will not achieve the top and will have to turn back. Leaving the hut just after midnight the team start their ascent in a howling gale, morale is low and they don’t feel they will make the top, but with 24 hours left, they have to try.
