Friday's Screenings

Into the Mind - Bella Coola Gnar
Directed by: JP Auclair, Eric Crosland, Dave Mossop
Perhaps the best seven minutes ever in a ski film: Sherpas Cinema spares no expense to film some of the most amazing ski footage on the planet.

 

 

Tyler Howell
Directed by: Jack Boston
Downhill skateboarder Tyler Howell embraces his surf style in the hills of Santa Barbara, California, stylishly descending at vomit-inducing speeds — wearing nothing more than a pair of shorts and a t-shirt.

 

 

Tashi and the Monk
Directed by: Johnny Burke, Andrew Hinton
Once a spiritual teacher in the U.S., Lobsang returned to India to create a community for orphaned and neglected children. This portrait of Lobsang and his family of 84 children is a short and lovely reminder that while there is a lot of darkness in the world, there are also beautiful shining points of light.

 

 


Bryan and Kaia
Directed by: Jonathan Kang
Mountain biker Bryan Gregory attempts to keep up with his dog, Kaia, on a piece of Pacific Northwest single track. This film might not appeal to cat people, but if you’re a dog person, your little heart may just burst with joy.

 

Wedge
Directed by: Brecht Vanthof
There's a highly anticipated beast of a winter wave in Newport Beach, California, that rolls in heavy and attracts hordes of brave souls who attempt to drop into its steep face.

 

 

Forest Scene From Valhalla
Tree skiing without snow!

 

 

 

 

 


DamNation
Directed by: Ben Knight, Travis Rummel
This powerful film odyssey across America explores the change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers.
