Adventure, Biography, Environment, Foreign Worlds, and Human Interest

THE EXPEDITION is an adventure in time and space. This feature film follows the incredible journey of Jason Lewis as he circumnavigates the world using only human power – no motors, no sails – on a thirteen-year odyssey of the will.
The astonishing scale of this mission unfolds as Jason’s story is revealed in reverse. As he pedals, skates, and paddles over 46,000 miles, facing the challenges of an entire world at an unusually personal pace, a grizzled, determined explorer contemplating his existence becomes a reckless young man searching for an identity. This wild path through enlightenment and disaster explores how every journey is shaped by the unknown turns of the past.
