$15.00

Once you’ve reached the top, it’s all downhill from there. For skiers, of course, this is great news, whether they’ve just gotten off a lift, left the starting gate or jumped from a helicopter. The thrill is in the descent — fast, frantic, potentially fatal, yet just plain fun. In this jaw-dropping program of films, you’ll meet a man who literally skis around the world, a Frenchman who traverses unusual slopes, a trio of pros who overcome some steep fears and awful injuries, proving black diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

Life’s a beach for these women and men: a genre-defying photographer who sees waters in a new light, an artist who paints what he sees every day, another who captures her therapeutic visions on canvas, New Yorkers who catch winter waves and a celebrated clique of pros who risk their limbs, lives and livelihoods in pursuit of the perfect break.
