“Days Of My Youth” Screens At Opera House
Red Bull Media House, in association with Matchstick Production Films, presents “Days Of My Youth,” playing Friday, November 14, at the Sheridan Opera House. MSP’s film examines every skier’s lifelong affinity for the sport. It exposes the many joys and occasional struggles associated with a lifestyle built around skiing. Filmed over two years using state of the art techniques and technologies, this movie offers a unique glimpse into the journey of self-discovery that every skier experiences.
Traveling the globe, the film looks through the lens in a new way and captures moments that define the cutting-edge of what is possible on skis. From nearly impossible descents in Alaska to massive terrain features with U.S. Olympian Bobby Brown, “Days Of My Youth” showcases the best action of the last two years all rolled into one incredible film. With narration from the famed and prolific Alan Watts alongside profound insights from modern-day skiing superstars, this movie defines what it means to be a skier.
“This is the first time in over 20 years of making ski films that we’ve had the luxury of taking 2 full winters to capture the action and really focus on our creative direction,” says executive producer Murray Wais. “We couldn’t be happier with the support from our sponsors and athletes who made this come to life.”
(“Days Of My Youth” is supported by Mountain Hardwear, Subaru, Swatch, Powder, GoPro, and Oakley.)
Shooting all over the world, including the far reaches of Svalbard, Norway and Peru’s Cordillera Blanca range, the film takes the viewer on an unparalleled cinematic experience utilizing the latest in aerial filming technology, the Cineflex Elite. By working with a small, intimate cast of the best skiers in the world, the film dives deeper into what skiing means for each individual athlete. Richard Permin, Mark Abma, James Heim, Michelle Parker, Cody Townsend, Markus Eder, Bobby Brown, Sam Anthamatten, and others make up an all-star cast, with a very special appearance by freeskiing pioneer Bobbie Burns.
