“Breathtaking cinematography and brilliant aerial imagery.” – Alexander Rogalski, Hot Docs 2018

 

The awe evoked by mountainous landscapes is universal, yet few people ever venture into genuine wilderness. Living amongst us is a special breed of people, undefined by age, gender, profession or background: for them, the draw of the mountains is all-consuming. After months of preparation, Martina and her 60 year-old mother Tania embark on a 6 month, 2300 km journey which takes them from Squamish, BC to Alaska, through a relentless alpine wilderness. There are others who share a passion for the mountain life: a group of nuns inhabiting a cloistered retreat to be closer to God; a risk-taking photographer; an impassioned climber; a focused snow artist; a couple who has been living off grid for nearly 50 years: what is it that leads these adventurous people to sacrifice everything – comfort, family, personal safety – for such an existence? Shot in cinematic detail, This Mountain Life attempts to answer the question and offers a riveting portrait of idealistic passion set high in the stunningly beautiful peaks of British Columbia.
