Video of the Week: North of Nightfall

This week’s Video of the Week takes place on Axel Heiberg Island in the Arctic Circle, where extreme mountain bikers aim to take on new heights. In the opening few seconds, a man ascends a mountain slope, carrying his bike on his shoulders. The camera pans out, so the viewer can see the vastness of the mountain glacier. In this video, Darren Berrecloth, Carson Storch, Cam Zink, and Tom van Steenbergen aim to share the beauty of mountain glaciers while doing what they love and testing their limits.

“How long did it take you to get up here?” Zink is asked. He responds, “It took seven flights.”

The video documents the magnitude and remoteness of mountain glaciers, while also capturing vastly unseen elements of nature. The videography is breathtaking, and the concept of biking down a mountain glacier is both dangerous and thrilling. To check out the action, watch the full movie here.
