INTO THE HILLS FILM TOUR

Olympic slopestyle skier and X Games medalist, Anna Segal, and Freeride World Tour athlete sister, Nat Segal, have teamed up with professional skier Izzy Lynch and adventure photographer Zoya Lynch to showcase their films—Finding The Line and Kindred—on a tour through British Columbia and Alberta this Fall.

Both films exhibit independently produced female content that not only showcase reels of rad skiing, but explore themes of risk, fear, family, relationships and personal empowerment. Snowsport lover or not, you will be entranced by the action, drawn into the journey and walk away inspired for winter.

As professional athletes Anna and Nat have confronted fear on numerous occasions from mammoth mountains to enormous terrain park jumps, yet, despite being brought up under the same roof, they have learned to deal with fear in almost contrasting ways, neither leading them to the success they dreamed of.

A heartfelt journey on the knife’s edge of big mountains throughout Canada and France push them to their physical and emotional limits. The extreme skiing mecca of Alaska pushes them beyond. The Australian sisters soon realise that the most important lessons lie within each other’s approach.

 

Izzy and Zoya Lynch were just regular kids growing up in the city, until their parents made one split-second decision that would completely change their lives. Kindred is the story about their family’s unlikely journey to becoming backcountry lodge owners and how it guided them both professionally and personally.

Through archival photos and interviews from the Lynch family, combined with stunning imagery of Amiskwi Lodge in the Canadian Rockies, this film inspires viewers to consider their own leaps-of-faith and how they may have defined their lives.

 

Part of the profits of the screening will go towards running Girls Do Ski non-profit 12 Under 20 for 2019, which provides a free AST 1 course for women under 20 years old.
