Filmy na czas (narciarskiej) kwarantanny

23 marca 2020, poniedziałek,

W trudnym okresie pandemii (i skróconego sezonu zimowego) Festiwal Filmów Górskich w kanadyjskim Banff udostępnił w sieci kilkadziesiąt pozycji ze swojego repertuaru.

Są wśród nich – prócz filmów poświęconych wspinaczce, kolarstwu, snowboardowi i innym aktywnościom górskim – oczywiście obrazy dotyczące narciarstwa. I to jakiego! Poniżej lista tytułów (wraz z opisami po angielsku) – oraz z linkami.

Gdy się je ogląda, żal może się wprawdzie nasilić, ale wtedy warto się pocieszyć, że gór wirus raczej nie naruszy – trzeba więc tylko samemu mu się nie dać.

RJ Ripper
(2018, 20 min)
Kids and bikes; wherever you are in the world, they go together. The chaotic streets of Kathmandu may not seem like a typical breeding ground for world-class mountain bikers, but
then again nothing is typical about Rajesh (RJ) Magar. Since learning to ride on a beat-up
clunker, to becoming the four-time National Champion at age 21, RJ’s story is one of boundless
childhood dreaming and unstoppable determination, forged from junkyard scraps and tested
on the rugged trails of the mighty Himalaya.

The Frozen Road
(2018, 25 min)
Self-shot and edited whilst cycling around the world, this short film charts my winter journey
into the Canadian Arctic as I completed my bike ride up the American continent. Compelled by
Jack London’s assertion, that ‘any man who is a man can travel alone’, I sought an adventure of
perfect solitude. Yet, as I came to realise, the harsh truths of travelling in such a formidable
environment were a long way from the romantic images I’d held of this land. The Frozen Road
is an honest reflection on my solo trip; of the wonder, terror and frustration I experienced when
riding through the unforgiving emptiness of one of the world’s ‚last great wildernesses’.

The Passage
(2018, 25 min)
In 1974, my 20-year-old parents and uncle Andy built their own canoes, launched them into the
Pacific, and became some of the first people in modern history to canoe from Washington to
Alaska up the Inside Passage. My brother and I grew up paddling those wooden canoes in the
Virginia rivers and the 1974 adventure became a legend in our family – shaping who we’ve
become, how we view our parents, and how our parents view themselves. In the summer of
2017, we renovated those canoes and with our aging parents completed their 1974 journey. The
Passage is a story about growing up, growing old, and the wild places that define us.
