Go Into the Mind

As you experience the majesty of Alaska, Bolivia, the Himalayas and beyond, Into the Mind paints a philosophical portrait of humankind.

Mount Washington Alpine Resort will host the critically acclaimed Into the Mind over the next two weeks across Vancouver Island. Into the Mind is a new film by Sherpas Cinema, creators of the award-winning film ‘All.I.Can’. With stunning cinematography and ground-breaking storytelling techniques, the Sherpas 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 Himalayas and beyond, Into the Mind paints a philosophical portrait of humankind.

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?

You can catch Into the Mind this Friday in Courtenay at the Stan Hagen Theatre at North Island College. Tickets can be purchased in advance at mountwashington.ca or Blue Toque Sports Swap in Courtenay.

If tickets are still available at the door, the mountain will post the number available on  facebook.com/mountwashington.ca on movie day.

The show then moves to Victoria on Saturday to the David Lam Auditorium at the University of Victoria. Proceeds from the Victoria show go to support the Mount Washington Volunteer Ski Patrol Association. The final showing will take place in Nanaimo on Nov. 21st at the Malaspina Theatre at Vancouver Island University.
