About the Film
“Unbounded” is an adventure-travel documentary following a young, unaided crew of four as they hike and pack-raft for four months into the infinite region known as Patagonia. The crew’s journey is based along the “Greater Patagonian Trail,” a relatively unknown route that is now the longest continuous trail network in South America. The adventure takes the crew through dense forests, snow-capped mountains, active volcanoes, barren deserts and everything in between. The film focuses on discovering the indescribable factors of the region, learning the history and culture of the people living amongst the Andes, and bringing to light the incredible beauty of the area – all in an effort to help raise awareness of the need to preserve this untamed but delicate environment.

His previous film, “Beyond Travel,” was chosen as an official selection for the Richmond International Film Festival and Creation International Film Festival, was selected into the Artist Circle for The Northern Virginia International Film Festival and won an award for feature documentary at the Cinema World Fest Awards.
