180° SOUTH - Original Soundtrack -2010-
(Folk, Roots, Rock)


Chris Malloy’s film strikes so deeply into the heart of Patagonia’s wilderness we come to feel at home there. 180° South: Conquerors of the Useless follows Jeff Johnson as he retraces the epic 1968 journey of his heroes Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins to Patagonia. Along the way he gets shipwrecked off Easter Island, surfs the longest wave of his life – and prepares himself for a rare ascent of Cerro Corcovado. Jeff’s life turns when he meets up in a rainy hut with Chouinard and Tompkins who, once driven purely by a love of climbing and surfing, now value above all the experience of raw nature – and have come to Patagonia to spend their fortunes to protect it. One of the best things about this great adventure is the soundtrack. Featuring Ugly Cassanova, James Mercer, Jack Johnson and Mason Jennings. This collection of songs really captures the spirit of the film and the freedom and openness of the environment portrayed. Cool collection of tunes. Beautiful film too.
