The first 100% HOLOS docu-film: it’s been five months in the making and it’s finally time to share a new kind of HOLOS treat, something sweet for the eyes and substance for the soul.
In the midst of a summer riddled with uncertainty, Jean-François (Jeff) Cauchon, one of Canada’s top ultra runners’ attempts to set a new world record. Jeff’s grounded resilience fuels his epic ambitions to break the current record for Greatest Elevation Gain on Foot in 24 Hours.
In this Short Docu-Film, we follow Jeff’s mighty efforts and unveil the events leading up to his world record challenge day and disclose the cascading events that proceed. Physically and mentally strong, Jeff’s actions reveal his level headed approach to a slightly insane objective. answers from the woods exposes the refined preparation, desired mental state, and established coping mechanisms a person of this athletic calibre must hold. Persistence, pain, progress - the ultra runners’ addiction is the sweaty sweet reward of shattering any type of record - this is a rare opportunity to see the never-ending trail that is inside the mind of an ultra runner.
The whole HOLOS team is very passionate about filmmaking, especially our co-founder Samuel T. Scofy who directed and produced this film. He shares:
