The World’s Most Acclaimed Freeskiers from The Faction Collective are Coming to NYC, Taking You Home to Explore What Makes Them The Skiers They Are Today
Our friends from Faction Skis are bringing one of the most anticipating ski films of the year to NYC for a one night only premiere! Come join us when we join our friends at The William Vale Ballroom for an evening of snow inspired cinema. In production for the past year, THIS IS HOME chronicles what makes a skier, tells personal stories about the environment that creates and the conditions that helped shape athletes including Candide Thovex, the world’s most famous and acclaimed freeskier, big mountain prodigy Johnny Collinson, 15-year old phenomenon Kelly Sildaru, and freeskiing icon Adam Delorme.
Filmed and produced by the team that delivered the award-winning “We Are The Faction Collective” webisodes, the Faction production team has been on a year-long mission, from the icy streets of Finland to chasing powder in Montana and exploring steep lines in Zermatt, and to visiting Thovex’s playground of La Clusaz and a rally session in Verbier.
Johnny Collinson’s been everywhere lately, rolling back into town a few weeks after hanging with our crew at the TGR NYC Premiere event a few weeks back. If you missed him the first time, don’t miss him for this one as he’ll be on hand for a signing and Q&A on this epic project.
You know if its snow on the East Coast, we’re going to be there representing… So get down and join us for the premiere Tue November 28th!
THIS IS HOME Trailer
“Every avid skier has memories about how they got hooked. I mean really hooked. I guess it’s like an induction to a special tribe. After talking to the athletes on our team last year, we wanted to get to the core how these totally diverse people from different places all converged and seem to share a bond. So we went on the road to the mountains – sometimes fields and streets – that shaped them. As the filming played out we realized that the message somehow evolved to the fact that home can be as much a feeling as any place. We hope THIS IS HOME feels like a homecoming for everyone who watches it.”
