Quietly, patiently, trees endure. They are the oldest living beings we come to know during our time on earth. They provide our shelter, our fuel, our companions, and—in some cases—our divinity. They are living bridges into our planet’s enormous past, their obscure stories written into their rings over centuries and even millennia. Treeline takes us to the enshrined cypress groves of Japan, the towering redcedars of British Columbia, and the ancient bristlecones of Nevada, following a handful of skiers, snowboarders, scientists and healers as they move through these giants and explore a connection older than humanity.
During the darkest hours of the night, while the rest of the world is sleeping, outdoor photographer Paul Zizka ventures out into the wilderness in search of the world’s starriest skies. His journey to photograph the celestial wonders takes him from his home amongst the peaks of the Canadian Rockies to the wild, desert dunes of Namibia and remote ice caps of Greenland. Ever the adventurer, he must balance his work and passion for photography with his equal devotion as a family man. In the Starlight is an intimate portrayal of Paul’s quest to capture the night skies, and what his time spent under the stars has taught him about life, love, adventure, and our place in the universe.
Following the slogan "Now or never", Nadine Wallner, the two-time Freeride World Champion from Arlberg takes us on a journey through her life - impish, amusing, progressiv. Growing up in the "cradle of alpine skiing" she early started exploring her own limits: skipping school on Blue Bird days, driving policemen crazy - all for the powder. Her passion for "white splendor" is still burning. Back in the days it was the busy contest lines what excited Nadine, today it is the untouched cliffs of Arlberg, far away from spotlight - and more than that: new opportunities are being opened up in her home mountains.
