The film features an award winning team including director Bjarne Salén (Best Documentary Powder Award, Best in Snow Banff Film Festival), executive producer Fran Derham (First Love), AFI-nominated editor Sara Edwards and guest appearances from skiing legends Mike Douglas and Seth Morrison and Freeride World Tour champion Lorraine Huber.
The ski-focused documentary will have its World Premiere on January 20th at The Maury Young Arts Centre in Whistler, B.C. on International Women’s Ski Day. Finding the Line explores fear, it’s paralyzing grip on humans and how it affects our decision-making. The Australian born and bred Segal Sisters use their skiing to understand fear and how it manifests in the two siblings’ lives.
Throughout their careers as professional skiers, Anna and Nat have both constantly been challenged by fear. Yet, despite being brought up under the same roof, they have learned to deal with it 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 pushes them to their physical and emotional limits. Then the extreme skiing mecca of Alaska pushes them beyond.
The Australian sisters soon realize that the most important lessons lie within each others’ approach. Equipped with greater insight, they negotiate the fine balance between staying in their comfort zone and taking too much risk, learning that sometimes to move forward, you need to understand what is holding you back.
