Who doesn’t love a good old team movie? Faction Skis blessed us in the past with awesome full-length flicks such as RootsThe Collective, and This is Home and this year they’re back with another banger called Abstract. Get ready for an epic action in the streets, backcountry, and parks, featuring heavy hitters such as Mac Forehand, Alex Hall, Antti Ollila, Matej Svancer, Mathilde Gremaud, Sarah Hoefflin, Tim McChesney, Elias Syrjä and many more.

From YouTube: Skiing is not art, and skiers are not artists. Unless, of course, skiing is art and skiers are artists? Faction’s fourth feature film exhibits pure creativity through a series of freeski sequences—from the vibrant streets of Japan, to the powdery pillows of British Columbia, to the finely-manicured terrain parks of Switzerland and Italy. Each location provides a blank canvas for the team’s artistic expression. Because nothing screams “artist” like sending large cliffs and grinding the side of buildings. In co-production with Red Bull Media House.
