Imagine surviving in a tent outside in the winter. For six months straight. Now imagine doing it with your 60-year-old mother. This Mountain Life, the documentary that played at the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival is next playing in Manchester, UK. The film follows intrepid duo Martina Halik and her 60-year-old mother Tania as they attempt a treacherous 6 month ski tour of the Coast Range from Squamish, BC to Alaska - a trip that had only been done once before, and never by an all-woman team. Completely shot in the mountains of British Columbia, the women’s 2300 km journey through a relentless mountain wilderness is artfully woven between a handful of diverse portraits of people with a true passion for a BC mountain lifestyle: a group of nuns inhabiting a mountain retreat to be closer to God; a photographer is buried in an avalanche; a seasoned alpinist (Barry Blanchard for those in the climbing community); a focused snow artist; a couple who has been living off grid for nearly 50 years.Trailer: https://www.facebook.com/mountainlifefilm/videos/963805963766667/
