Global Film Series - 180° South, November 16, 6:30pm

Posted by on Thursday, November 10, 2016 - 10:01am

180° South
Wednesday, November 16, 2016 6:30 p.m.
I.G. Greer Theater

An International Education Week Event

Inspired by Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins' 1968 excursion into Patagonia, adventurer Jeff Johnson sets out to retrace the footsteps of his heroes' arduous trek as filmmaker Chris Malloy follows with camera in hand. Despite the thrill of surfing the biggest wave he's ever encountered, Johnson quickly discovers just how treacherous things can get when you decide to challenge Mother Nature's majesty.

"No matter where you watch 180° South, you're bound to feel a little trapped and in need of a vacation, preferably a long one, to a beautiful piece of open country."

 - Grayson Schaffer, Outside
