ET-01. This Mountain Life

Canada, Feature Documentary, 2018, 77 min

Winner at Banff Mountain Film Festival

​The ravishingly shot This Mountain Life is a spectacular production that deserves to be seen on the widest screen one can find. POV Magazine​

The awe that mountainous landscapes evoke is universal, but living among us is a special breed of people for whom the draw of the mountains is so strong that their lives must revolve around them. Like Martina and her 60-year-old mother Tania, who embark on a six-month, 2,300-kilometer backpack/ski trip from British Columbia to Alaska through a relentless mountain wilderness. Some nights are so cold that they have to spoon their cameras so the batteries don't freeze. And there are others who share this passion: a group of nuns inhabiting a mountain retreat to be closer to God; a photographer who is buried in an avalanche; an impassioned alpinist; a talented snow artist; and a couple who has been living off-grid for nearly 50 years. This Mountain Life is a riveting story of human passion and adventure.
