A Few Steps Further

A Few Steps Further

Runtime: 13 minutes
Directed by: Erik Petersen
Produced by: Erick Petersen Productions
Language: English
Country of origin: USA

When Kevin Davis first began running, he was overweight and out of shape. He tried, but failed to finish a 1-mile run. Now, years later, he runs 100-mile races. He uses that fitness to support his other passion - backcountry hunting. In 2017, Davis was selected to run the Hardrock 100. Two months later he attempts a backcountry mountain goat hunt in the wilds of Alaska. The film looks at the crossover between endurance sports and hunting, and the need for public lands and wild places to do both.

The Barkley Marathon is, for many, the toughest race in the world. In a remote corner of mountains in Tennessee, between former coal mines and an abandoned high-security prison, Lazarus Lake has been organising this underground event for thirty years. It is both an ultra-trail and orienteering race. Its challenges include: a moving course in the middle of a gnarly woods; no precise path; five loops of about thirty-five kilometers; and a completion cut-off time of less than sixty hours. Since 1987, over 1,000 participants have attempeted the Barkley but only fifteen have finished. "My idea was that only 1% of people can overcome it," says the organiser. Built around Alexis Berg's splendid black and white photos, and co-directed by Aurélien Delfosse, La Barkley Sans Pitié retraces a fierce 2017 edition. At the start of the last lap, only two of the forty registered were still competing.
