This Mountain Life

This Mountain Life

Director: Grant Baldwin - Canada 77'

The awe that mountainous landscapes evoke is universal, yet few of us ever venture into true wilderness. Living amongst us is a special breed of people. They are undefined by age, gender, profession or background, but for them, the draw of the mountains is so strong that their lives must revolve around it. Martina and her 60 year-old mother Tania embark on a 6 month, 2300km journey to Alaska through a relentless mountain wilderness; a group of nuns inhabiting a mountain retreat to be closer to God; a photographer is buried in an avalanche; an impassioned alpinist; a focused snow artist; a couple who has been living off grid in the mountains for nearly 50 years. What is it that leads these adventurous people to sacrifice everything – comfort, family, personal safety – for a life in the mountains?
