Exclusive Clip From 180 South: Conquerors of the Useless


ComingSoon.net has your exclusive first look at a clip from documentary 180 South: Conquerors of the Useless, opening in limited theaters on Friday, May 21st.

Chris Malloy’s film follows Jeff Johnson as he retraces the epic 1968 journey of his heroes Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins to Patagonia. Along the way he gets shipwrecked off Easter Island, surfs the longest wave of his life — and prepares himself for a rare ascent of Cerro Corcovado. Jeff’s life turns when he meets up in a rainy hut with Chouinard and Tompkins who, once driven purely by a love of climbing and surfing, now value above all the experience of raw nature — and have come to Patagonia to spend their fortunes to protect it.
