Into The Empty Quarter

“I knew instinctively that it was the very hardness of life in the desert which drew me back there – it was the same pull which takes men back to the polar ice, to high mountains, and to the sea.” – Wilfred Thesiger

On a journey inspired by a hero, Wilfred Thesiger, Leon McCarron and Alastair Humphreys walked around 1000 miles into the Empty Quarter desert. The film of the adventure is now available.

Here is the trailer. If you enjoy it, you can read endorsements from people who’ve watched the whole film and then purchase the full film below.
