"This is Home" is not your ordinary ski movie, which the global events to celebrate it have demonstrated: a raucous crowd of 1,800 fans lined up to watch in Paris last week; on the same day, 500 fans in Salt Lake City joined in the fun. And the tour continues across the globe, stoking up skiers for the winter ahead.
This is Home is the first-ever feature-length film by The Faction Collective, a group of die-hard skiers that have built one of the last independent ski companies. Faction is known for making some of the world's best skis, used by world-class athletes like Candide Thovex, Johnny Collinson, Duncan Adams, Kelly Sildaru, and Tim McChesney, among others.
This is Home will premiere in Vancouver on Tuesday, October 24 at The Rio Theatre, doors at 6pm. Links to website, trailer, and event page below.
Would you be interested in connecting with someone from Faction to hear about why they felt it was worth spending two years making a ski film? Or perhaps to connect with two of the athletes, Tim McChesney and Duncan Adams, by phone or in-person, before the show? The director of the film, Etienne Mérel, is also available for interviews in English or French.
I'd be glad to set aside some tickets under your name - would you please let me know?
