Shextreme kicks off with this screening of Jen Randall (Psycho Vertical) and British adventurer Sarah Outen’s hotly anticipated new feature. This exciting documentary follows Sarah on her five-year, 20,000-mile, human-powered journey as she traversed the globe by bike, kayak and rowing boat. Faced with several challenges from terrifying tropical storms at sea to broken boats, Sarah’s heroic odyssey outwards becomes a gripping journey inwards. She bravely reveals an unflinching insight into trauma, including PTSD, whilst battling a broken vessel and spirit in her quest to follow one neat line around the world. Award-winning adventure filmmaker Jen Randall expertly edits and sensitively refines Sarah’s reams of raw footage to reveal the kind heart and soul of this epic story. Transcending the physical journey, this empowering documentary explores the meaning of home and celebrates one woman’s trek towards true emotional acceptance.
Screenings of Home will be preceded by short film Bob & Marion.
Dir. Amanda Bluglass & Callum Earnshaw, UK, 2019, 5 mins. With Marion and Bob Luker.
“It’s the agony and the ecstasy,” reflect Marion (78) and Bob Luker (81). A moving portrait of a lifetime’s marathon running, set against Dartmoor’s epic landscape.
