Introduction

78 mins, Director: Grant Baldwin, Canada.
The awe that mountainous landscapes evoke is universal, yet most seldom venture into true wilderness. Martina and her 60 year-old mother Tania embark on a six-month trek through the mountains of Canada in a journey that has never before been completed by a duo. Their adventure is interspersed with beautifully crafted portraits of high-altitude human endurance and passion—an avalanche survivor, a snowshoe artist, a snowbound convent—that are by turns captivating and inspiring.
