ABOUT THE FILM

Martina Halik and her 60-year-old mother Tania attempt a six-month, 2300 km ski trek through BC’s treacherous Coast Mountains to Alaska, a journey that has been completed only once. Their adventure is interspersed with beautifully crafted portraits of high-altitude human endurance: an avalanche survivor, a snowshoe artist and a group of nuns inhabiting a mountain retreat to be closer to God. What is it that leads these adventurous people to sacrifice comfort, family and personal safety for life in the mountains? Shot in cinematic detail, this riveting portrait of human passion won Best Visuals at the UK’s Kendal Mountain Festival.

Animator Michael A. Mann in attendance.
