All.I.Can is an environmental awareness snow sports film by Sherpas Cinema showing Dec. 8 at the Riding Fool Hostel in Cumberland.

Sherpas Cinema, the ground-breaking film team deeply rooted in authenticity and progression, presents their newest film that was two years, five countries and over 15 skiers in the making.

Sherpas unites spectacular cinematography with creative cinematic language to fuse passion for skiing with motivation for green initiatives and forward thinking. In bringing the planet to life and drawing parallels between daily existence, they find a common ground between the global situation and the real individual.

Broken into the three areas of focus, the film takes us on a confronting, magical and inspiring path.

Featured athlete J.P. Auclair drives home the sobering thought and environmental motivation that the film creates, stating, “We feel like we need to be doing less of this and less of that. But I don’t think it’s about doing less; it’s about doing more.”

These personal goals, motivations and passions for encouraging environmental awareness around the world, and especially in the winter climes that support the lifestyle of the professional athletes presented in the film, are portrayed throughout in an adrenaline-filled, inspired fashion.

The incredible natural cinematography, integrated music and structural components of the film have melded together in an awe-inspiring presentation of various layers, messages and stories.

Taking ski-filmmaking to an entirely new level, the Sherpas

are going beyond tricks and big lines and injecting a sense of morality and social responsibility.

Featuring ground-breaking skiing from Chile to Greenland, naturally mind-blowing scenery, and an environmental engagement that creates an accessible identification point for the viewer, All.I.Can leaves you with an inspiring new perspective and appreciation for what we have and what we stand to lose.

A Comox Valley presentation of All.I.Can. will happen at the Riding Fool Hostel on Dec. 8. Doors will open at 7 p.m., with the presentation of the film at 8.

Tickets are for sale at Blue Toque and Valhalla Pure Outfitters in Courtenay and The Patch and Dodge City Cycle in Cumberland, $12 in advance. This is a licenced event, so no minors, please.

All proceeds will go to the Island Avalanche Bulletin and the Cumberland Community Forest.
