Into the Empty Quarter – watch Today, for Free


One of my favourite ever adventures was walking through the Empty Quarter desert in the footsteps of Wilfred Thesiger.
Leon and I have decided to release our film, for free, so that more people can enjoy this positive portrayal of the Middle East (and a pretty silly adventure).

This is the 20-minute ‘festival cut’ of the film. Feel free to watch, share, enjoy, download as you wish.
If you’d like to see the full-length version of the film, it is available here.

The film was chosen for the prestigious Banff Mountain Film Festival last year. Leon and I decided to walk from the airport to Banff to attend the festival. It was a very daft little adventure, and the film of that short walk is below. I hope that you enjoy it!
