Listen To Episode 5 Of The Paul Kirtley Podcast
My guest in episode 5 of my podcast is adventure film-maker Justine Curgenven. She’s an expedition sea kayaker who has made some truly challenging journeys and whose films have aired on National Geographic, Channel 4, Channel 5 and the BBC. Her films have won over a dozen prestigious prizes including best adventure film at both the Banff and Kendal Mountain Film Festivals.
Justine joins me to talk about the incredible, unprecedented sea kayak journey she and Sarah Outen made along the Aleutian Islands chain and Alaskan peninsular, which resulted in a rich wilderness experience of wild, remote islands, unpredictable seas, brutally long days, isolated Aleut native communities and abundant wildlife.

Kayaking The Aleutians Film
As you might expect from someone with Justine’s adventure film-making pedigree, she made a film of her and Sarah’s 101-day, 1,500 mile journey. There are two versions, a 55 minute standard version and a 70-minute director’s cut. Both are high quality documentaries, all the more impressive given the tough conditions in which the video was captured.
The trailer for Kayaking The Aleutians is below:
