Pras On WorldFilms: 180° SOUTH

180° South: Conquerors of the Useless

 180° South: Conquerors of the Useless [Blu-ray]A touching and an inspiring film about nature and conservation seen through the eyes of Jeff Johnson, a surfer & adventurer from Danville, CA. An adventure by road and boat from California to Patagonia (Argentina) retracing an epic 1968 journey made by his heroes Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins to Patagonia . Along the way he encounters several unplanned detours and stops in Mexico, Easter Island and Chile and an opportunity to climb Cerro Corcovado.

Yvon was the founder of PATAGONIA INC. and Doug founded clothing companies – THE NORTH FACE and THE ESPIRIT CLOTHING COMPANY .

 Jeff’s experiences and time spent with Yvon & Doug turn into a rare lesson in ecology and a conservation model pioneered by them after they sold their respective companies to setup a land trust focused on protecting millins of acres of pristine land in Patagonia.
