Adventure filmmaker Bjarne Salen of Endlessflow Films will host three short films as a fundraiser for the Mount Shasta Avalanche Center. The event is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 8 at Mt. Shasta Sisson Museum. Doors open at 6 p.m. The show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 at the door; no charge for children age 10 and under. Snacks, beer and wine will be available.
The night will start with “Finding the Line,” a ski movie about the Segal sisters, two professional skiers who confront their fears in the mountains of Alaska.
“The World’s Highest Marathon” is a story about Christopher Mohn, a Lyme disease survivor who ran the world’s highest marathon from the Everest Basecamp.
The headlining feature film is about Paige Alms, a groundbreaking wave rider, XXL award winning charger and pioneer of women’s big wave surfing. This insightful documentary takes you inside Alms’s world, journeying to her home island of Maui where she trains mentally and physically for the rigors taking on her favorite wave – the infamous Jaws.
Salen says, “I’m creating movies about inspiring people and places from around the world. Skiing, climbing, surfing, and kayaking in the most fantastic places we can find.”
Salen, who is now based out of Mt. Shasta adds, “I am excited to show my films locally and support the Mount Shasta Avalanche Center.”
All films will be shown with opportunities for audience discussion with the filmmaker.
The museum is located at 1 North Old Stage Road in Mt. Shasta. For more information visit shastaavalanche.org or firstname.lastname@example.org.
