On September 15th, 2011, Denver’s Gothic Theatre will play host to the world premiere of Solitaire, the latest backcountry skiing and snowboarding film from Sweetgrass Productions. After 2 years in Argentina, Chile, Peru and Bolivia, the Colorado-based documentary team is back home to share the evidence of their adventuring.
Compiled with signature Sweetgrass elegance and intensity, this film seems to focus on the land, its people and their stories, as much as it does on uncharted lines and blissful or blistering cliff drops. But hey, I’m as excited to find out as you ought to be!
