Flow is an aerial and symphonic journey with skier Sam Favret, in the heart of a closed resort during the winter of 2021 – with doses of unreality, serenity, powerful skiing, and above all, the pleasure of rediscovering a playground in its wild state.

To The Hills & Back


At a remote backcountry cabin, a veteran mountain guide and his daughter connect and reflect upon a lifetime in the mountains. A torch is being passed within their family’s legacy of guides and they discuss the history of those that have come and gone, some too soon. Stories unfold, from the early pioneers to modern day hard charging enthusiasts, and we hear from several characters including those with life shattering events.
