The Search For Freedom
The Nelson, BC premier of "The Search for Freedom" gave a nearly full house a great perspective on life, freedom and happiness. From the point of view of extreme athletes; Tony Hawk, Kelly Slater, Shane McConkey, Jeremy Jones, to name a few, to future prodigies like Tom Schaar & Logan LaPlante everyone had the same message; do what you love & be happy. Weather you are into skiing, snowboarding, surfing, skateboarding, biking, climbing, motorcycling or skydiving, this movie has it all. Thoughts from Warren Miller & Bruce Brown touch on the evolution of these sports and the movies that document them with amazing cinematography and thoughtful narration. I think this movie will bring chills to anyone with a passion for the outdoors.
And what better place to host a movie premier than Nelson? With many of the movie's contributors being residents of the area, it was no surprise the turnout was so large (adding an extra screening afterwards). There is even a shot of our local ski resort! But Nelson is a special place where most residents have come in search of their own freedom & happiness. I give this movie five stars and would watch it again and again. It is truly an inspirational documentary.
