Two years in the making, Valhalla is the latest film from Sweetgrass Productions. The premise of the film is that as we get older we lose our passion for life, that sense of wonder we had as a child, but can find it again.
This is a tale about the search to rediscover the freedom of youth.
Valhalla is like a psychedelic version of ‘Into the Wild’, but with a bit of nudity, a lot of skiing and boarding, a happy ending, and a simple message: Go out there. Find yourself. Bring yourself back and find your place. It’s a homage to ‘70s era surfing and skiing films and counterculture lifestyle, with a sound track to match.
But as with any Sweetgrass film, its also got incredible skiing and boarding footage in some beautiful terrain.
We will also be showing a couple of short films from Sweetgrass before Valhalla: Desert River, a nice flowing piece set in Alaska, and Skiing the Void, about skiing and coming to terms with the loss of friends.
This is being shown as a fund raiser for climber and all round great guy Lincoln Shepherd and his family. Their house was burnt down in the recent Grampians fire. Feel free to make a donation of any size.
