Off the Edge
True life adventure in the Southern Alps.
OFF THE EDGE is a depiction of the longing in each of us to be free and to be part of the natural world around us. It is a fresh statement, a picture on a human scale, not the filming of an impossible dream. It confirms that fact that such experiences exist and are within our grasp.
The humour, the friendship and characters of these two comrades bonded together here amid the awesome power of nature, where they experience the contrasts of beauty and danger, solitude and exciting adventure, unfolds before us in a series of inspiring events.
Michael Firth's film provides a glimpse and an understanding of the joy in taking those calculated risks to experience a realm, a part of life most people have forgotten. We feel that everyone would like to be an explorer. It is an inheritance form the past and from childhood days when everything around us was new and exciting. The lure of adventure has been an irresistable force through the ages.
