180° South: Conquerors of the Useless
Documentary
 
Chris Malloy's film strikes so deeply into the heart of Patagonia's wilderness we come to feel at home there. "180° South: Conquerors of the Useless" follows Jeff Johnson as he retraces the epic 1968 journey of his heroes Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins to Patagonia. Along the way he gets shipwrecked off Easter Island, surfs the longest wave of his life -- and prepares himself for a rare ascent of Cerro Corcovado. Jeff's life turns when he meets up in a rainy hut with Chouinard and Tompkins who, once driven purely by a love of climbing and surfing, now value above all the experience of raw nature -- and have come to Patagonia to spend their fortunes to protect it Rated No Rating .
