I picked John up in my 1974 VW Joy Bus and we found a semi-quiet trailhead to park and do the interview in my bus. Friends, I want you to go see this one night movie event in nationwide theaters on Thursday, May 19th. John Eldredge and his sons (check out bios on the entire team) have made an adventure film that I’m stoked about you experiencing. It’s titled, A Story Worth Living (CLICK HERE to view the Trailer). Ransomed Heart has secured theaters across the country to view this film, so you can be assured that there is a theater near you (CLICK HERE to find a theater near you).

John’s best known as an author of the best selling book for men, Wild at Heart, Discovering the Secret of a Man’s Soul. His latest project, A Story Worth Living Film was inspired by the film series, A Long Way Round starring Charlie Boorman and Ewan Mcgregor. Aiming to make twelve new short films as a follow up to their first film series, Killing Lions, they leaned into a dream of riding 1,000 miles through the Colorado Backcountry on adventure motorcycles. I drove with Jon Dale to buy one of the used BMW GS Adventure bikes in Grand Junction, CO from New York Times best-selling author, Carl Richards.
Adventure trips can produce a lot of hardship. The film captures the human connections of friendship, conversations and honest connections while navigating the mountainous terrain.
The night of the premier, they will show an interview at the end of the film with Charlie Boorman. Check out the partners who have helped support this adventure film.
Here’s what the media is saying about the film
Six novice riders – father, sons and friends – take on the Colorado backcountry on BMW F800GS Adventure motorcycles to create a documentary about life, meaning and the longing to be part of an adventure bigger than one’s self that is written on every human heart.
Everyone is looking for a story worth living,” is the line that opens the film—an adventure narrative that captures the highs and lows of dual-sport riding, including a bone-breaking crash on Engineer Pass.
