La Liste: Everything or Nothing
Everyone has their own bucket list from visiting exotic locations to meeting celebrities to performing activities. For two friends with Jérémie Heitz and Sam Anthamatten, freeskiing down some of the most unique and dangerous slopes are on their list. Director Eric Crosland captures their journeys from the Alps to Peru to Pakistan in the documentary La Liste: Everything Or Nothing.
Here is the synopsis of the documentary:
Back in 2016, free-skier Jérémie Heitz compiled a list of some of the most daunting and iconic peaks in The Alps to then freeride down them at record speeds. Having developed a taste for adrenaline, the Swiss skier, known amongst his peers as the fastest free-skier in the world, collaborates with his close friend Sam Anthamatten to set off on an ambitious new endeavor that will take them across the world!
The plan is simple, but by no means safe, as the duo write up a new shortlist, this time of some of the most awe-inspiring, intimidating mountain ranges on Earth, finding high-altitude peaks that surpass 6000 meters, taking the notion of steep-skiing to a whole new level, and redefining what it means to be a free-rider. On this journey, which takes them from the Andes mountain range in Peru, to the Karakoram in Pakistan, Jérémie and Sam set off on a trip of a lifetime. Though what goes up, must come down—and in their case, it does so at a frightening pace!
