2016 Colorado Shorts Showcase
142 Miles From Monday is a film about stepping away from the 9-5 lifestyle, the benefits of scaring yourself, and about connecting with nature to find meaning in everyday life. The film follows three mountain bikers riding the legendary Kokopelli Trail in the high mountain deserts of Colorado and Utah; a place they’ll find is often unpredictable and unforgiving, but one that reveals lessons for those who explore its lonely landscapes.
