Lives of the Artists II

Enter the twisted and unpredictable realm of intense personal obsession and heroic artistic pursuit as we journey to the ends of the earth for the second chapter in our award-winning cinematic adventure, Lives of the Artists.

Featuring James Lavelle and UNKLE and legendary freeriders Jeremy Jones and Xavier De Le Rue, 'Follow Me Down' explores a theme that anyone driven by some immeasurable passion will recognise — that there are no easy rides in life.

We travel to Antarctica, spurning the usual 'heli-drop and ride', big-mountain approach in search of the more visceral rewards that come with scaling each near-vertical face on foot. And we join UNKLE on tour in Tokyo, St. Petersburg and London, immersing ourselves in the uncompromising sounds and beliefs of a pioneering musical outfit that has strived to push the boundaries of artistic expression while retaining total integrity for close to 20 years. The film vividly merges two disparate stories from entirely different worlds into one beautiful and compelling tribute to human perseverance.
