Directed by Jonas Stenstrom, “Decoding the Driftless” is a wild ride of adventure through the air, across rugged landscapes, on and under water, through a secret underworld, and across time itself to explore and decipher ancient clues of the Driftless Region, with its captivating scenic beauty. View the trailer here. Producer George Howe will also be in attendance to introduce the film and lead a Q & A following the film!
The six short films included in the 2019 Adventure Film Set showcase compelling stories of individuals pushing themselves to the limits while cycling, canoeing, winter surfing, ice climbing, traveling, and base jumping.
