2 September 2015 | by goinminionSee all my reviews

This documentary has to be viewed more than once.... free falling/flying in Antarctica - I must have rewound that 20 times already. I do have one question - where are the credits for all the instrumental music in the movie? Some of these instrumentals are awesome.... the one that is playing when Shane is skiing is about as good a song I can think of to listen to floating in the powder. The only song credits listed (10 total) are for songs where someone is singing, but there are at least 9 instrumental pieces in the documentary. If someone has any idea of the title for any of these songs please forward. Thanks, and thanks for such a great production!
