Amputee Skier Shreds Expectations

Adaptive skier Vasu Sojitra lost his right leg when he was nine months old to a blood infection, but that hasn't stopped him from fearlessly venturing into the backcountry to summit peaks completely unassisted. "I do what I love, and I'm going to keep doing it no matter what," he says. T-Bar Film's Out on a Limb profiles this remarkable self-taught athlete's ability to adapt and overcome life's obstacles.

Watch an interview with Vasu Sojitra.

 The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
