Into the Hills film tour feature’s Golden’s backcountry

Golden Star Staff

Izzy and Zoya Lynch have played in Golden’s backcountry since their family took a leap of faith and invested in the Amiskwi Lodge, in the back of the Blaeberry Valley.

The professional skiers and photographers have paired up with Olympic slopestyle skier and X Games medalist Anna Segal, and her Freeride World Tour athlete sister Nat Segal, to bring their adventures to the big screen in Canada.

Finding the Line and Kindred are two films created by the sister duos, that will tour through British Columbia and Alberta this fall. There are five tour dates, and 10 independent screenings in total.

Whether or not you’re a snowsport lover, the entrancing action will draw viewers into the action on November 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Golden Civic Centre, and leave them inspired for winter.

Both films exhibit independently produced female content that not only showcase reels of rad skiing, but explore themes of risk, fear, family, relationships and personal empowerment.

Izzy and Zoya Lynch were just regular kids growing up in the city, until their parents made one split-second decision that would completely change their lives.

Kindred is the story about their family’s unlikely journey to becoming backcountry lodge owners and how it guided them both professionally and personally.

Directed by Izzy and produced by Zoya, this film runs nine minutes long.

Through archival photos and interviews from the Lynch family, combined with stunning imagery of Amiskwi Lodge in the Canadian Rockies, this film inspires viewers to consider their own leaps-of-faith and how they may have defined their lives.

As professional athletes Anna and Nat have confronted fear on numerous occasions from mammoth mountains to enormous terrain park jumps, yet, despite being brought up under the same roof, they have learned to deal with fear in almost contrasting ways, neither leading them to the success they dreamed of.

A heartfelt journey on the knife’s edge of big mountains throughout Canada and France push them to their physical and emotional limits.

The extreme skiing mecca of Alaska pushes them beyond.

The Australian sisters soon realize that the most important lessons lie within each others’ approach.

Produced by Anna and Nat, and directed by Bjarne Salen, Finding the Line is 58 minutes long, and co-stars a handful of other athletes.

Part of the profits of the screening will go towards running Girls Do Ski nonprofit 12 Under 20 for 2019, which provides a free AST 1 course for women under 20 years old.

Check out www.findingthelinefilm.com for more information on each screening. Finding the Line is presented on November 10 at the Golden Civic Centre.

Doors open at 6 p.m., and Whitetooth Brewery will be serving up beers. The event begins at 7:30 p.m.
