We already mentioned it before, but it is coming closer: in two days, on November 7th, the next ‘HEROES BY NATURE’ showcase arrives in Switzerland with an incredible program focused on snowboarding.
The ‘HEROES BY NATURE’ event in Zurich will be celebrating the people, places and philosophies that made the sport what it is today. On the bill will be the critically acclaimed Craig Kelly profile ‘Let It Ride’ along with the World Premiere of ‘Burton Presents: Peace Park.’
From the early roots in the farmlands of Europe, to the Wicklund boards of the Midwest US in the 40s, to the first production ʻSnurferʼ in the 60s, non-stop progression has fueled both the products and the passion for snowboarding. After early years of fighting for acceptance at ski areas worldwide, snowboarding today is still rooted in a long history of individuals striking out on their own path, often finding the most creative way to get there.
About Heroes by nature:
It will be hosted in digital cinemas in Germany, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Finland and Romania.
Each event will focus on a different scene – from skiing to biking, from surfing to snowboarding – with an exciting programme of full-length features, short films, trailers, bonus clips and more, most of the films being World or European premieres.
Special guests Jacques Russo (director/producer “Let it Ride”) and Burton riders Terje Haakonsen (NOR), Nicolas Müller (SUI), Alek Oestreng (NOR), Marko Grilc (SLO) and Roope Tonteri (FIN) will be flying in to introduce the movies and answer questions from the pan-European audience.
Eventually, you will get to see the Ollie Over to Wallride by Mark Sollors, which has been our October issue’s cover shot.
We’re stoked already and so should you!
