Japan / 2006 / 82'
“Ski Jumping Pairs” is an incredible form of new Ski Jumping event where two jumpers share a pair of skis and it became the official competition for the 2006 Torino Olympics. But this is only a parody competition, a truly imaginary sport made by creative graphic designers. Doctor of Physics in Hokkaido, Toshifumi Harada, is the man who challenged in this ridiculous dream. This competition originated from his miracle discovery and soon his sons and ski jumpers worldwide were drawn into his amazing world. This is a faked documentary movie of the story behind the challenges and distress of the people drawn in the origin of Ski Jumping Pairs.
