Return to Earth | A Mountain Bike Movie by Anthill Films

Time is either spent wisely or it is just spent. Second after second; minute after minute; moment after moment… they’re all there for the taking. This film is about the simple act of living completely in those moments. A cinematic journey, connected by true to life examples set by riders of all ages around the world, who prove that when we lose track of time, we make the most of it.

Return to Earth. The time is now.


When you read this, stop. Don’t let another moment slip into the infinite sea of “up-nexts”, “likes” and “suggestions for you". Don’t be fooled. This isn’t a bunch of shiny pictures designed to distract and keep you scrolling that little bit longer. We made this film to inspire you to take your attention back and literally Return to Earth. Here, there are no worries. No deadlines. No good old days. No bad days. Here, every single second offers endless possibility… with a little help from a simple machine that defies boundaries and knows no limits.

Return to Earth, the ninth movie from the crew at Anthill Films, is a cinematic journey across diverse mountain bike communities, personalities and environments. Each segment captures a different way the bike can immerse riders in the present moment. Starring some of the sport’s biggest athletes, unsung shredders and up-and-coming youth, Return to Earth features the most diverse group of riders Anthill has ever assembled. And to bring their vision to life, the crew traveled to more locations than ever before, with shoots taking place all over the world from hometown trails in Squamish, BC to the remote mountains of Patagonia. All set to an unforgettable classic rock soundtrack. 

The world premiere of Return to Earth will take place on June 14, 2019 in Vancouver, BC followed by exclusive premiere events taking place in cities all over the world. On July 16, 2019 the film will be released globally on digital platforms such as iTunes, Amazon Prime and Google Play.
