More than two years in the making, Return to Earth is a cinematic journey into the power of mountain biking to immerse us in the present moment. Fly through the lush coastal jungles of Oahu. Feel the dust from Utah’s other-worldly landscapes. Lose yourself in the untouched mountains of Patagonia, glide through the diverse landscape of Lenzerheide or just have fun during an inner city dirt park session in Zurich. Return to Earth proves in an impressive way that it really doesn’t matter when and where you ride your bike – as long as you ride your bike. Segment by segment true to life examples set by some of the sport’s biggest athletes, unsung shredders and up-and-coming youth, Return to Earth shows that when we lose track of time, we can make the most of it.
Like hardly any other movie Return to Earth creates a conceptional arch of emotional and mental grounding through mountain biking, the eponymous return to earth, that last for the whole 45 minutes screen time and is transported through a variety of sensational tricks alternating with relaxed and easy-going flow elements. The choice of riders also will have a lasting impression on the audience. Next to top athletes like Rampage champion Brett Rheeder, Thomas Genon or Brandon Semenuk or veteran riders like Cam McCaul the next generation of young guns around Jackson Goldstone and Jakob Jewett gets its own segment to display their passion for mountain biking.
The cinematically impressive 4K shots taken on beautiful locations around the globe are connected by an iconic soundtrack constisting of classic rock, hard rock and folk pop from the likes of The Beach Boys or Steppenwolf.
To celebrate the release of the film, Anthill Films is revealing an exclusive clip of Brett Rheeder’s segment in Big Water, Utah available for everyone to check out… for free. You don’t have to just read about the film, you can experience it firsthand right now.
