Alex Hoye, Exec. Producer aka co-founder of Faction Skis will be on hand to introduce the film and for Q&A afterward.
2 years after the release of THIS IS HOME, the award-winning, a first full-feature film by Faction Skis, the Swiss brand are back to present their newest production: THE COLLECTIVE.
Featuring 26 of the best freeskiers in the world, THE COLLECTIVE boasts names such as two-time X-Games gold medalist Alex Hall; the Finnish freestyle-wizard Antti Ollila; Swiss steep-skiing, FWT-Champion Sam Anthamatten; as well as the Japanese-freeskiing pioneer Taisuke Kusunoki. The women can’t be forgotten either, with an all-star team featuring Estonian phenom Kelly Sildaru; Olympic medalists Sarah Hoefflin and Mathilde Gremaud as well as 3-time X-Games medalist Giulia Tanno. These women are at the forefront of the sport and have a segment all to themselves that has made waves in the industry.
Adventuring to undiscovered peaks together, plotting midnight-raids on inner-city handrails, lapping your home run until that last ray of sunshine disappears behind a distant ridge… Skiing is Collective. Some call it a tribe mentality, others call it a shared sense of purpose. This film is our definition, written by a diverse team, each with their own ideas, their own forms of expression. THE COLLECTIVE is more than the sum of its parts. No matter who you are or where you come from – it feels good to be part of something special.
