Skiing the Trans-Siberian Railway With Pettit, Martini and Backstrom



Sherpas Cinema may not have a full-length movie offering for you to dig into this year, but they have The Great Siberian Traverse, a film featuring Ingrid Backstrom, Callum Pettit, Nick Martini and some of the most remote communities and mountains in Mother Russia. If that weren’t enough, its Wes Anderson vibes and catchy soundtrack take the already exciting trailer to the next level. But here’s the best part: The Great Siberian Traverse is already available on Vimeo on Demand.

Enjoy. It’s not often that projects of this scale, execution and intrigue come around.
