Upping The Andes

113

A half hour long documentary about an epic five month 8000 mile charity bike ride completed by four men, Archie Innes, Guthrie Fenton, Toby MacKean, and Tom Lawson. The foursome cycled from Ushuaia in Argentina, the most southern point of South America, to Fara Punta Gallinas in Colombia, and they did it all unsupported.

They raised over £100,000 in the process which was split between several UK based charity organisations. This documentary by Ben Stevens condenses five months worth of footage into just half an hour and attempts to show the immense physical strain and emotional hardship endured by the participants on their journey. They also kept regular updates of their mission on the website uppingtheandes.com which is still live for you to peruse if interested.
