Dream Line Film Fundraiser for the Mt Shasta Avalanche Center
03/05/2016

Adventure Film Maker Bjarne Salen of Endlessflow Films will host his film Dream Line as a fundraiser for the Mount Shasta Avalanche Center.

Dream Line, winner of Best Documentary at the 15th Annual Powder Awards, is a one hour documentary that explores the merging of the dreamworld with waking life, through the travels and ski adventures of mythical skier Ptor Spricenieks. Ptor's quest of following his most heartfelt desires has created a life where his sleeping dreams have 'crossed over' and lead him onwards in the adventure of creating his reality. Classic archival footage of steep skiing descents, expeditions and classic powder skiing from France, Canada, Peru, Costa Rica, Pakistan, India, Colombia serendipitously coincides with the profound story line of Ptor's global journey of mountain adventures. Ptor's 'dream line' finally takes him to the film's climax on the pursuit of a remote, unclimbed peak amidst a unique cultural scenario in the Himalayan mountains of Pakistan. Dreamline is a ski and life adventure meant to connect with a very wide audience but is sure to captivate the mountain and ski crowd. It’s an honest film that demonstrates how a skier’s love for skiing can lead to both exhilaration, risk management, and vulnerability. See the trailer at https://vimeo.com/ondemand/24790

Prior to showing Dream Line, several Endlessflow short films will be shown with opportunities for audience discussion.
