GROOVE REQUIEM: IN THE KEY OF SKI (1990)

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.
