Xavier de le Rue and Lucas Debari get on a boat to Antarctic to discover a whole new level of riding terrain.

From his first trip to Antarctic few years ago, Xavier de Le Rue came back with a feeling it was the trip of his life although he felt he only scratched the surface of what was doable. Since then, exploring this magical playground with the hope to get as lucky as the first time with the snow conditions and weather became like an obsession. This documentary is about his expedition mixing sailing, mountaineering, snowboarding, wild life and the discovery of the unexpected.
Mission Antarctic is a TimeLine Films production in collaboration with Camp 4 collective, starring Xavier de Le Rue and Lucas Debari, original soundtrack by Aidan Lavelle and James Carroll.

Guido Perrini is based in Switzerland and specializes in mountain cinematography.
