5Point Adventure Film Festival 2018 Cinematic Poem Short Film Trailer

Narrated by: Michael Kennedy

“The annual 5Point Film Festival trailer reminds us to reach for our highest ideals and live our best adventure. This year is no different.

In 2007, Julie Kennedy founded the 5Point Film Festival. In 2012, her husband Michael Kennedy, one of America’s most legendary alpinists wrote an open ‘Letter to My [his] Son’ that was published in The Alpinist Magazine. They were poignant and heartfelt words from a father to his son discussing life, passion and direction. After losing their son this year, it seemed like an appropriate homage to revisit and repurpose these words for the larger community. The letter reminds us to live our own individual adventures, passions, lives and to always try our best to reach for the highest ideals and embody the 5points: purpose, respect, commitment, humility, balance.”

Excerpts from “Letter To My Son” by Michael Kennedy

“How can I express all the thoughts and emotions that swirl in my head, Hayden, when you are halfway around the world on a big route? I remember my own days up high, the feeling of lightness as the earth drops away, the moments of pure grace when nothing matters except the next move—setting a foot just so, feeling the solid thunk of an axe, the calmness of my heart and mind. Everything I needed was right before me.

I know that’s what you’re searching for, but it’s not always what you get. For I also recall the deafening fatigue of climbing too many hours without stopping, the dry throat and the aching belly, the paralyzing fear of a long runout. The bad anchors. The close calls with storms, rockfall and avalanches. The anxiety of being days away from safety, wondering whether the next pitch will go, searching for a bivy site or just a place to sit for a few hours, knowing that the only way out is over the summit and down an unfamiliar ridge.

You’ve gotten all that and more since you left home.”

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Paweł Jankowski And Zdzisław Folga

A Touch Of Podlasie Cinematic Visual Poem Short Film Trailer in Poland Directed by Paweł Jankowsk & Zdzisław Folga Poster 2015

“Cząstka Podlasia” (A Touch of Podlasie), a film by three artists about their region…Podlasie, a historical region in eastern Poland, (that) covers the parts of three provinces: Podlaskie, Lubelskie, and a tiny portion of Mazowieckie. Named after its dense forests, it is viewed as the most pristine Polish region to this day. It is also called “Kresy” (the borderlands), a name it derives from the close proximity to the border. The accent of its people is called “kresowy,” due to its softness and similarity to Russian.

Zdzisław Folga, Paweł Jankowski and the score’s author Marek Kubik were trying to show in Cząstka Podlasia every feature of this magical land. Today, they are finishing their work on the 36-minute document, in which, just like in the cult Baraka by Rob Fricke from 1992, not a single word is said.”

The first surf film shot entirely in 4K, View From a Blue Moon follows the world’s most dynamic surfer John Florence and his closest friends from his home on the North Shore of Oahu to his favorite surfing destinations around the globe. From the dreamy blue perfection of the South Pacific to the darkest uncharted waters of Africa (and everywhere in between), Florence faces a broad spectrum of emotions as he continues to seal his legacy as one of the most gifted surfers ever. And while the young Hawaiian is pulled in increasingly different directions, there is no form of pressure that will keep him from his ultimate goal — to redefine what is possible in the ocean.”
