Any bike movie that starts to the tune of Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys is a must watch by our standards. Combine that with the shredding of Thomas Vanderham, Casey Browne, Brett Rheeder and many more and you’ve got yourself a couple of bucks well spent.
After a wildly successful premiere season, Anthill’s latest offering is ready for your viewing pleasure, with the full movie is now available on Itunes! Check out the trailer below and get yourself a copy, you don’t want to miss this!—ML
Return to Earth, the ninth movie from the crew at Anthill Films, is a cinematic journey across diverse mountain bike communities, personalities and environments. Each segment captures a different way the bike can immerse riders in the present moment. Starring some of the sport’s biggest athletes, unsung shredders and up-and-coming youth, Return to Earth features the most diverse group of riders Anthill has ever assembled. And to bring their vision to life, the crew traveled to more locations than ever before, with shoots taking place all over the world from hometown trails in Squamish, BC to the remote mountains of Patagonia. All set to an unforgettable classic rock soundtrack.
“Our goal with Return to Earth, is to transport the viewer immediately into that feeling of total immersion you get on a bike ride.” says Anthill Director and Producer Darcy Wittenburg. “These days, it feels like we are becoming more and more disconnected from the natural world and distracted from the things that really matter. We believe that the bike can be a powerful tool to help counter this. We’re hoping the film connects with audiences and can help inspire new riders to get out on a bike.”
