VIMFF a skiers journey iran 1600x800

A Skier’s Journey: Iran

Director: Jordan Manley
Origin: Canada
Year of Production: 2016
Duration: 13 min

They were cautioned not to travel to Iran. Too dangerous, too restrictive, too unknown. But skiers Chad Sayers and Forrest Coots went anyway. What they found: bustling bazaars, intricately adorned mosques, steamy bathhouses, powder-coated slopes and small pockets of rich ski culture. This poetic film from Jordan Manley is a meditation on a complex country that can be both welcoming and impenetrable, as seen through the eyes of skiers.
