Movie review- Pure- Shades of Winter production

If you are only going to download* one movie this year, then this is it. We were fortunate enough to get a seat at the Melbourne premiere, hosted by Nat Segal.

So what’s so great about this movie? Well all of it. A slight, pleasant artistic flare runs through the film as you are transported to some of the world’s most stunning ski areas. From powder flurries in Niseko to some straight up there mountain climbing in

The below extract is taken from the Shades of Winter website.

PURE is the second “Shades of Winter” movie of Austrian freeskier and filmmaker Sandra Lahnsteiner. Sharing her plattform of “Shades of Winter” with female athletes from all over the world you can again expect high performance skiing at its best. Together with director Mario Feil and DOP Mathias Bergmann they stepped it up in every aspect of movie making. PURE will leave its footprints and get you pumped to get out in the mountains

It’s great seeing a film featuring female athletes across a selection of winter sports in a way unseen by most. It wasn’t the usual super hot snow bunny in a bikini straddling a set of skis (which by the way is how the media portray most female athletes). There are some heart stopping mountains as you watch these ladies leap of mountains. 

As the Australian snow season gets closer by the day I’m inspired by what these ladies have achieved.    

*Pure is available for a very reasonable price on their website.
