Unbounded

In December 2016, a disparate team of travellers in their early twenties set out to hike for four months along the unrelenting Greater Patagonian Trail. The lives of the group hang in the balance as they are forced to traverse rapidly eroding mountain passes and whack their way through dense forests brimming with insects and void of sunlight. Battling the elements, both the physical and mental resilience of the crew is constantly tested.

Hiking over 700 kilometres and engaging with locals along the way, they are reminded of the stark discrepancy between their ways of life and are made aware of the looming developmental projects that threaten the previously untouched and untainted areas across Patagonia. In a moving display of companionship, ‘Unbounded’ illustrates that the future of the country rests on the preservation and protection of its breath-taking natural spaces.
