  2. The Noble Spirit

    Andrea Johnson, Robert Holmes / Cinema of Conscience / USA / 2014 / Adventure, Biography, Documentary / 33 mins
    Fred Noble grew up in an orphanage and became an extreme skier, windsurfer and para-glider. In 2010 he was diagnosed with ALS, Lou Gehrig's Disease. This incurable degenerative condition usually results in death within 3 to 5 years but Fred faced the challenge head on and continued his passion for living life to the full and even with the loss of use of his legs continued to ski and para-glide. His can-do attitude even in the face of imminent certain death is a powerful message that life should be lived for the moment and that anything is possible. Preparation for death is the most empowering thing that can happen to a person.

    This is the account of the first expedition to paddle the entire 4000+ miles of the Amazon River from its most distant source high in the Peruvian Andes to the Atlantic Ocean in Brazil. This international multi-generational team of explorers ran 500 miles of uncharted white water before hitting the final 3800 mile push to the ocean. Along the way, they were fired upon, held at gunpoint 5 times, dealt with hostile natives and friendly narcotraffickers, robbed by pirates, beaten by massive waves and tidal surges and dealt with team conflicts and illness all within the 111 day expedition.
