FREE RIDER | Trailer

From the creative genius that brought you Zabardast and The Eternal Beauty Of Snowboarding (which if you haven’t seen stop what you’re doing and watch right now) comes FREE RIDER starring big mountain savant Victor de Le Rue and pro skier Sam Anthamatten. Presented by The North Face, in FREE RIDER Director Jérôme Tanon professionally captures this ambitious crew’s excursions to ride consequential backcountry lines in Alaska, all the while tastefully sprinkling in his distinct sense of self-deprecating humor throughout the documentation. Despite the comical nature of  Jérôme’s work, he always does well to make his viewers think deeply, too. In this film, it seems the question at hand surrounds what it truly means to be free.
