Sherpas Cinema travelled to the Salar de Uyuni salt pan in Bolivia to film a segment for its newest film

Journey Into the Mind with the Sherpas

North Okanagan Cycling Society presents Sherpas Cinema’s latest film, Into the Mind, for one night only at the Vernon Towne Cinema Thursday.

Outdoor film enthusiasts can journey into the mind of the common skier when he attempts to climb and ski the ultimate mountain.

It’s all part of the visual feast in Sherpas Cinema’s latest film, Into the Mind, which shows for one night only at the Vernon Towne Cinema Thursday.

Put on by the North Okanagan Cycling Society (NOCS), the Okanagan premiere comes from the creators of the award winning ski film All.I.Can, and is part of the NOCS’ fundraising to create and maintain mountain bike trails and infrastructure in the Vernon area.

“We build, maintain, ride, protect and advocate for new trails,” said Sean Cameron, board member with the NOCS. “We’re the voice for mountain biking in the North Okanagan. The best part is we have a really good time doing it.”

Winner of Film of the Year and Best Editing awards at the 2013 International Freeski Film Festival, Into the Mind features stunning cinematography and ground-breaking storytelling techniques, which blur the lines between dream and reality.

In the film, the innovative athletic segments are actually a glimpse into a skier’s dream-scape, each one harboring messages that help inform his current, real-life choices.

Shot in Alaska, Bolivia, the Himalayas and beyond, Into the Mind paints a philosophical portrait of how we balance risk versus reward, why we are inspired to rise to the challenges in our lives, and what we learn on this journey to attain them.

Sponsored by Skevik Skis, Silver Star, Skyride Cycle, Attridge, Olympia Cycle and Ski and Sun Country Cycle, doors to the screening open at 7 p.m. with the film starting at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $15 and are available at any Vernon bike shop or online at nocs.ca. Limited tickets may also be available at the door to the Towne on the night of the screening.
