Last winter, We Are Explorers ventured deep into the Aussie backcountry with pro skier Coen Bennie-Faull to discover what fuels his fire. What they captured was the Australian Alps as you’ve never seen them before.

They had the following to say about the film:

We spent 6 days roaming the mountains in search of lines like a pack of wild addicts. We battled bone rattling winds and teeth shattering cold, camping precariously on the Western Faces of the Snowy Mountains, patiently waiting for the weather gods to shake, rattle and roll.

Creating this was an incredible experience, and I can’t thank our dream crew enough for weaving together this project. Particularly to Coen for sharing his personal story with us.

The films ponders questions about what ignites our passions, resulting in a powerful story about love, loss, inspiration and why we should all squeeze the fruit of our life dry.
