From the creators of the award-winning, genre-busting ski movie All.I.Can comes Into The Mind. Even if you’re not a heli-skiing pow pow hound, the stunning cinematography and groundbreaking storytelling techniques will draw you in. The film immerses you into the mind of a skier as he attempts to climb and conquer the ultimate mountain. This beautiful, poignant film takes you to Alaska, Bolivia, the Himalayas and beyond in 12 chapters. The chapter titled “Death” follows Johnny CollinsonKris Erickson, and Kye Petersen to Bolivia. Peterson—whose father died skiing—is blessed by a local shaman, then heads back up the mountain. Into the Mind paints a philosophical portrait of humankind, and looks at why the mountains keep pulling people back in, and what they’re willing to risk for skiing.
