180* (degrees) South

It's a sailing/surfing/climbing movie with a message about stopping development in South America. There's a good 20 minutes about how the 50' sailboats mast snaps in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, they go to Easter Island and have to step a new mast while anchored in a bay. Pretty interesting rig set up to step the mast. Some funny commentary about how uncomfortable it is to be sailing in the ocean for days on end.

Oh and it's pretty heavily endorsed by Patagonia, but worth a look.
