South to South (1999)

South to South lo res

Olivier Aubert and Mike Blyth used their trike-type microlights to fly around the world way back in 1999. Yup, Ushuaia to New York and across Greenland to Britain. Then downhill to France, Spain, Morocco and along the west coast of Africa to Cape Town. Quite how this film isn’t internationally famous as possibly the greatest adventure travel project in the history of man is a mystery. It is a huge pleasure to present it as the Saturday night ‘best in show’ at the festival which will literally leave you breathless. This amazing film is exactly what you have a bought a ticket for; daring, interesting, difficult and spectacularly good fun. We recognise that adventure travel is a case of horses for courses but we defy anybody to stand up at the end of this film and exclaim, ‘I don’t ever want to do that!’
