This Mountain Life

Grant Baldwin

Canada / 2018 / 78' / Italian premiere

DOCUMENTARY

COMPETITION

At once alluring and intimidating, the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Canada, have served as a muse for artists and explorers for centuries. Yet most of us seldom venture into true wilderness. Martina Halik and her mother Tania attempt a 2300km ski trek to Alaska through the treacherous Coast Mountains. Woven throughout their adventure are vignettes of others who have chosen this life: a group of nuns inhabiting a mountain retreat; a photographer is buried in an avalanche; an impassioned alpinist; a focused snow artist; a couple who has been living off grid in the mountains for nearly 50 years. This Mountain Life is a riveting and intimate portrait of human passion for mountains, set high in the peaks of British Columbia.
