We know we’re late on this, but we just watched this for the first time. Sweetgrass has a very unique perspective on mountain life and their previous movies display their flare for the artistic and focus on lifestyle.
Valhalla looks to follow that credo. Watching this trailer caused my to call my father and ask him what it was like to be 14 years-old in 1969. He said it felt a bit like this trailer.
Valhalla comes out in Fall 2013.
“The weightlessness of youth: every breath radiates opportunity and hope; every sense thrives on the wealth of the present; every thing whispers of brilliance and awe. When you’ve seen the season’s first great snow through the eyes of a child—you’ve known true happiness. But what happened to that simple joy? Where do we find the freedom that time and wisdom stole away?
Valhalla, Sweetgrass Productions’ fourth feature film, 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.
Weaving narrative-driven style with award-winning, face-melting backcountry ski and snowboard cinematography; Valhalla is a vivid explosion of color, character, snow, and nostalgic soul.” – Sweetgrass Productions

Having been 21 in 1969, I’ll say: NICE trailer. Donovan wrote some very psychedelic songs. We need a fresh look at films, and limits to push that aren’t always dangerous. Nice work.
