Cross-country Skiing / Ski de fond

Top of page

Here you can experience the essence of this sport, the exhilaration of skimming over white fields and quiet forest trails. This film shows how four experts do it, observing at close range their perfect synchronization of motion and, from a distance, the ribbon of colour they make against the winter landscape as they weave single-file in their vari-coloured ski togs. It is a poem without words of a winter's day on the hills. Film without words.
