DescriptionA short drama and two documentaries featuring extreme sports. 'Ultimate Gs - Zac's Flying Dream' (2000) features CGI-animated flying sequences and follows the journey of a young boy who hopes to one day become a pilot. Eleven-year-old Zac (Michael Cera) and his friend, Laura (Emma Taylor-Isherwood), are both passionate about aeroplanes, often creating their own contraptions. As adults, they both achieve their dreams, but Zac (Joel McNichol) and Laura (Emma Campbell) have now grown apart. When Zac later goes to visit his friend, he unexpectedly finds himself in the air, engaged in a duel against an adversary, allowing for an exciting flying display above the Grand Canyon. 'The Ultimate Wave - Tahiti' (2010) is a surfing documentary set on the island paradise of Teahupo'o, Tahiti. This coral reef is visited by many thrill-seekers and surfers every year, and is home to an impressive array of wildlife, such as tropical fish, whales, dolphins and sharks. The programme is presented by world surfing champion Kelly Slater and Tahitian surfer Raimana Van Bastolaer. Finally, 'Adrenaline Rush - The Science of Risk' (2002) examines the world of skydiving and base jumping (parachuting from a building, bridge or cliff). With breathtaking views of skydiving over the Florida Keys, the Mojave Desert and the magnificent Fjords of Norway, this giant-screen experience explores the psychological and physiological forces behind risk-taking and the physics involved in high-risk activities. The film follows two top risk-takers, Adrian Nicholas and Katarina Ollikainen, as they try to fly the first parachute ever designed as imagined in 1485 by Leonardo da Vinci. It also allows viewers to experience a 4,150-foot base jump from a Norwegian cliff thanks to a camera strapped to one of the professional jumpers.
