About:
A portrait of the influential ski filmmaker.

In the early 1950s, Warren Miller began to tour the country with his independently produced adventure films, exhibiting them at one-off events where he would perform live narration. Wildly popular, his shows would become annual events, expand to more than 100 bookings a year, and, most importantly, inculcate in the audience a fascination with the sport that would see it grow in popularity. As detailed in filmmaker Patrick Creadon’s affectionate portrait, Miller and his production company was among the first extreme sports filmmakers, even if his idiosyncratic approach eventually proved to feel too old-fashioned as tastes changed. Filmed soon before Miller’s death at 93, the doc is an easy-going – and sometimes sentimental – tribute to the maverick niche filmmaker, detailing the unlikely path to his lifelong career, and will be most appreciated by ski and adventure sports insiders than a general audience.
