Boarders Without Borders is a movie project that relies on crowd-funding to get realised. If you want to see Hannah Teter, Gaby Viteri and a couple more pro snowboarders ride and explore Iran you can head over to their Kickstarter page and do your share. Here’s some more information on their cause:
Boarders Without Borders will follow four professional American snowboarders, two females (Olympic Gold Medalist Hannah Teter & Pro-rider Gabi Viteri) and two male (TBD), as they journey to Iran to ride the world class uncharted Alborz mountains. When one thinks of Iran, it is typically the political strife and unrest that is widely represented in the American media. The last thing that comes to mind is 14,000-foot mountains covered in Utah-like powder, with densely populated resorts and chalets nestled at the base of the slopes. However, with over 75% of the population of Iran aged 35 and under, counter-cultures like snowboarding are hidden sanctuaries for the youth of Iran. We will explore this unknown world on and off the slopes through the eyes of these three American riders, and experience their journey as they discover a country that has been sealed off from the West for over 30 years.
In order to complete the film, we must successfully raise $125,000 by September the 16th to cover the remainder of the expenses. Kickstarter is all or nothing funding; meaning, if we do not raise our goal ($125,000) then we do not recieve anything. We are truly humbled if you would pledge your support to the project at any reward level to the right. There are numerous rewards for the snowboard fan and non-snowboard fan at many different levels.
Please have a look below for more detailed information on the film, including Trailers, Rider Bio’s and Budget. We look forward to creating an amazing film that everyone can be proud to support and be a part of… Should you have any questions, feel free to contact us at the email address at the bottom of the page…
