China is the destination of our latest snowboard documentary and the same time world´s first snowboard movie partly funded by crowdfunding.
It happened more or less on accident when René Eckert decided to create a new snowboard documentary in 2011. With the unique chance to visit China, Eckert decided to use that opportunity to realize Blickinsfreie´s new masterstroke.
The documentary focuses on the passion driven Chinese shredders and the key role of the Nanshan Open snowboard competition which has driven the young Chinese scene to become one of the most progressive out there.
Besides Chinese top stars Wang Lei or He Wei, legends like Travis Parker or Risto Mattila are joining shooting stars Nils Arvidsson, Marc Swoboda or Werni Stock to give a deep insight into the snowboard culture of the Far East.
Those ones of you that always wanted to know how subcultures like snowboarding develop in a world where Facebook or Myspace is banned, should make sure to download the movie in HIGH DEFINITION.
A big thanks goes out to all people in China for making this project a reality. Special thanks to Steve Zdarsky and his crew for the local support!
