I’ve been addicted to the feeling of calm that sets in hours into a long ride or alpine climb since I was a Boy Scout scrambling up fourteeners. It’s nice to finally have a word for the feeling.
ATARAXIA is a short film that was born after a discussion with a good friend, Rudi. Rudi is a runner, he loves the great outdoors and running long distances. He also holds a PhD in linguistics and once talked about “ataraxia”, this incredible state of freedom that he sometimes reaches during long alpine outings. This film is about understanding that feeling.
