Peace Mountain

Director: Colleen Genteman
Origin: New Zealand
Duration: 15 minutes

Janina Kuzma and Evelina Nilsson embark on the most epic adventure of their lives on a ski trip that no one has ever attempted, to ski Mount Hermon, a mountain range situated on the boarder between three countries; Israel, Lebanon and Syria. With the countries still officially at war, Janina and Evelina cross boarders starting in Israel, looking at the snow capped ridges on the Lebanon-Syria border west of the Syrian capital Damascus, to attempt to ski this iconic mountain from all neighboring countries. They are confronted with military soldiers on patrol on both sides of the boarder as they brave the threat of soaring missiles in hopes to ski in peace across the borders.
