Explorers: Adventures of the Century

Explorers: Adventures of the Century

Rouven Blankenfeld was the Director of the documentary film Defeating Oceans Seven about Stephen Redmond‘s quest to achieve the Oceans Seven.

This year, he directed an episode of Explorers: Adventures of the Century, a television series of 30-minute segments on some of the world’s most courageous explorers and adventurers in partnership with Outside Television and Red Bull Media House.

His colleague Wolfgang Merkel writes, “In a world in which all boundaries seem to have been conquered, adventurers and extreme sports people restlessly seek out new challenges. They try to defeat the impregnable, make come through the impossible – despite all threatening risks and hazarding perilous efforts. Explorers – Adventures of the Century profiles the wild dozen of the most exceptional protagonists – both men and women – in their quest for the adventures of the new century.”

The film showcases four adventurers venturing into new terrain:

* Kayaker Steve Fisher on the treacherous Zambezi River
* BASE-jumpers Valery Rozov and Karina Hollekim
* Irish marathon swimmer Stephen Redmond swimming the iconic Oceans Seven
