"When you’ve seen the season’s first great snow through the eyes of a child—you’ve known true happiness." Good work, Sweetgrass, it fully worked! For about two and a half minutes, you took us back to childhood.
In their upcoming film Valhalla, the production company set out to find that sensation of freedom which "time and wisdom stole away." We love where this project is going just as much as we love its 70s ski vibes! Reminds us of 1974 classic Winter Equinox. "..a vivid explosion of color, character, snow, and nostalgic soul." -agreed.
From Sweetgrass themselves:
Valhalla is the tale of one man's search to rediscover the freedom of his youth. Feeling the distant heat of it's fire still burning in the mountains of the frozen north, he goes in search of those tending the flame—the untamed, the wild, and the outcast dwelling on the fringe.
