Boulder, CO - August 18, 2008 – Deep powder. Huge airs. World-class cinematography. It's all part of Warren Miller's Children of Winter, the world's largest action sports film, which is set to music by Radiohead, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Beck, and others. Shown in crystal-clear high definition, the film tour crisscrosses the nation and nine countries worldwide. Check out warrenmiller.com for all tour information, videos, photos, and more.
Warren Miller's 2008 Film Tour showcases spectacular footage shot in Japan, Austria, British Columbia, Alaska, and Iceland with jaw-dropping performances by an impressive assembly of world-class athletes, including Jonny Moseley, Daron Rahlves, Marco Sullivan, Seth Wescott, Gerry Lopez, and Wendy Fisher.
Timeless Warren Miller athlete Chris Anthony takes on Leadville, Colorado's legendary skijoring competition. Pep Fujas explores Silverton Mountain, the only backcountry ski resort in the United States. Teenage snowboard pro Ben Watts chases surf legend Gerry Lopez on Mount Bachelor's frozen waves. Skiing's top female athletes meet up in Crested Butte for the deepest powder in decades. And Jeff Annetts, Drew Stoecklein, and Derek Foose sail Iceland, skiing mountains that end in the ocean. Stefan Lessard of The Dave Matthews Band, Eric Fawcett of N.E.R.D, Adam Gardner of Guster, and Ed Robertson of The Barenaked Ladies unite to form Yukon Kornelius—a supergroup who perform on and off the snow in Vermont and Colorado.
"When it's cold and snowing, others run inside. But skiers and snowboarders do the opposite, no matter how old we are," said Max Bervy, director and producer. "We are all the Children of Winter, and if you ski or ride, this movie reaffirms what we all know, that we're lucky to know the shortest, coldest days of the year."
Warren Miller's Children of Winter tours the nation as a limited release and stops in more than 240 U.S. cities, including Seattle, Chicago, and Los Angeles. With screenings often running for one night only, Warren Miller films attract a cult-like following and mark the official start of winter for sports enthusiasts everywhere. Warren Miller films tour the country as the country's only high definition, nationwide film tour. For more information, local show dates and details, visit warrenmiller.com.
