Home in the blizzard by Stephen Curtain

Skiing needs and gives balance. Feeling and understanding that helps to know balance and equilibrium in the landscape, even in the wildest blizzards. Antarctic and alpine film maker, guide and educator Stephen Curtain shares a bold map of hope and action for a snowier, cooling planet when we choose to ‘look for the gaps, not the trees’.

Treeline, the new film from Patagonia:

treeline‘Treeline takes us to the enshrined cypress groves of Japan, the towering red cedars of British Columbia, and the ancient bristlecones of Nevada, following a handful of skiers, snowboarders, scientists and healers as they move through these giants and explore a connection older than humanity.’

Entry by donation. All proceeds direct to POW Australia.
