The latest film by Sherpas Cinema, Into The Mind, will be shown at the Riding Fool Hostel in Cumberland on Oct. 17.
This is a story of rising to the ultimate challenge. Having the courage to risk fatal exposure and the perseverance demanded on the quest for achievement. These are not solely physical feats, they are mental conquests.
The creators of the award-winning film All.I.Can use stunning cinematography and ground-breaking storytelling techniques to blur the lines between dream state and reality, and immerse you into the mind of a common skier as he attempts to climb and ski the ultimate mountain.
Innovative athlete segments are actually a glimpse into his dreamscape, each one harbouring messages that help inform our hero’s current, real-life choices.
As you experience the majesty of Alaska, Bolivia, the Himalaya and beyond, Into the Mind paints a philosophical portrait of human kind.
How do we balance risk versus reward? Why are we inspired to rise to the challenges in our lives and what do we learn on this journey to attain them?
Two showings will take place on the 17th: an all-ages show at 5:30 p.m. and a 19+ show at 8. Tickets are available at Dodge City Cycles in Cumberland and at Valhalla Pure Outfitters in Courtenay.
All proceeds from the show will go to the Cumberland Community Forest Society and the Vancouver Island Avalanche Centre Society.
