About the Film
Action, Sports | 75 MIN | US
This 1990 film was set against the timeline of the first Gulf War. While not blatantly political, the film walks a tightrope between war and pursuing pleasure like skiing during a time of war.
The film features the first ever “BoarderCross” competition, a blistering windsurfing sequence with Laird Hamilton and the second ever “extreme skiing’ contest.
Starring: Scot Schmidt, Dan Donnelly, Laird Hamilton, Davey McCoy, Ace MacKay-Smith, Jason Moore, Rob Boyd and Jimbo Morgan.
In partnership with Aspen Film, U.S. Ski Hall of Fame member Greg Stump will host four screenings of his vintage ski films during his February residency at the Aspen Film Isis Theatre. Giveaways and a Q+A conversation will follow each film.
Ticket proceeds to benefit the AF Isis Theatre capital campaign.
This screening is currently SOLD OUT. There will be a rush line at the door in case of no shows.
