Special Early Peek at a Fine Cut of the Upcoming Film
Screening in Telluride Only
In the remote mountains of Afghanistan, boys grow up farming, raising animals and learning the religious dictates of their families. When the snow falls, they “play ski,” gliding through the powder on setups that are often handmade. This is the story of one village’s top competitors in the annual ski challenge — two teenage boys caught between ethnic tensions and on the brink of adulthood, for whom skiing taps into something transcendent.
