Ski Bum: The Warren Miller Story

USA, Feature Documentary, 2019, 94 min

Opening night film at the Slamdance Film Festival

This film chronicles the life and times of legendary filmmaker Warren Miller who, through his annual ski films and national tours, which began in the early 1950s, was a driving force in the development and promotion of the ski industry in America and throughout the world. Miller, who died last year at 93, sat months before his passing for his final interview. He reminisced about living off rabbit stew and sleeping in a teardrop trailer in his endless pursuit of the perfect ski run, and he explained in great detail the challenges—both personal and professional—that he faced over the course of his career. Ski Bum shows you a rare look at the man behind the films that kicked off ski seasons across the country for more than 60 years.

Directed by Patrick Creadon
