This Mountain Life
1 x 90'
Martina Halik and her 60 year-old mother Tania embark on a six-month ski trek through the treacherous Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Canada. This journey has only been completed once before, and never by a female duo. Their adventure is interspersed with beautifully crafted portraits of high-altitude human endurance and passion-an avalanche survivor, a snowshoe artist, a snowbound convent-that are by turns captivating and inspiring. Woven between their uplifting story are vignettes of others who have chosen a mountain life. What is it that leads these adventurous people to sacrifice everything for a life in the mountains?
