In summer 2011, Outdoor Research athlete Kyle Dempster took off on his bike across Kyrgyzstan with a couple mostly-accurate maps, a trailer full of climbing gear, and a vocabulary of 10 Kyrgyz words. He spent two months pedaling and pushing the bike more than 1200 km on roads of variable states of neglect, wading through wild rivers, dealing with corrupt military checkpoint staff, and soloing a handful of unclimbed alpine rock and mixed routes. He recorded the journey, his camera his only partner, friend, and sometimes the only receiving end of his conversations for days at a time.
In 2013, Kyle’s self-shot footage of his journey in Kyrgyzstan made it to the desk of filmmakers Fitz Cahall and Austin Siadak, who were asked to look at the footage and see if there might be enough to chop together a 4-minute climbing film. They saw a lot more potential in it, and turned it into the 25-minute “The Road From Karakol,” which debuted at the 5Point Film Festival and took home the Best In Fest award.
A van overloaded with too many people sputters and coughs as it rolls to a stop in front of an old, ill-kept hotel. Bald, hand-patched tires let out a sigh of relief as a band of American climbers tumble out of the rickety jalopy that has been their home for the last 10 hours. Overhead, two thousand feet of striped, limestone cliffs loom above dense jungle as Ben Spannuth unpacks his gear from the back of the make-shift bus.
The travel day is at an end. Tomorrow, he will explore the caves eroded into the face of the rock.
Welcome to Colombia! Follow Ben as he develops and sends new routes in the latest film by Louder Than 11, presented by FIVE TEN®.

Pé no Pedal @ São Paulo, Brazil 2012
Mini documentário criado por um grupo de estudantes do curso de Jornalismo da faculdade FIAM-FAAM para o projeto de TCC (Trabalho de Conclusão do Curso), em São Paulo entre agosto e novembro de 2012.
O Pé no Pedal é um documentário que conta histórias de ciclistas urbanos. Os personagens expoem as experiências vividas em São Paulo e provam que a bicicleta tem o poder de transformar vidas. O trabalho também possui caráter ideológico, ao mostrar protestos feitos por cicloativistas, apresentar a estrutura cicloviária da capital paulista e falar sobre acidentes fatais envolvendo ciclistas.
Através deste documentário é possível enxergar a cidade de São Paulo pelos olhos dos ciclistas, um ponto de vista incomum para quem está acostumado a olhar o mundo pelo retrovisor dos carros.
