Westerners young and old arrive in Laos, and so do their cameras. They document a fragile and deceptively brutal world, revealing themselves in the process.

180° South follows Jeff Johnson as he retraces the epic 1968 journey of his heroes Yvon Chouinard (founder of the Patagonia company) and Doug Tompkins (founder of The North Face company) 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 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.
