Capturing the Impossible

Capturing the Impossible

  • Bryan Smith, Adventure Filmmaker

For extreme filmmaker Bryan Smith, the line between going for it and going too far is often blurry - especially when you’re exploring the earth’s most remote environments. In this edge-of-your-seat presentation, Bryan shows you what it means to adventure with purpose, and why he believes the best expeditions are the ones with a healthy chance of failure. He’s faced machete-wielding locals in Papua New Guinea, suffered frostbite during the first-ever ice climb of Niagara Falls, explored the South Pacific’s deepest canyons and scaled North America’s tallest mountains to bring you behind the scenes and capture the impossible.
