Trailer: M-Line Freeski TV explores skiing’s effect on family in “Far Away”
Austrian based film company M-Line Freeski TV is back with the trailer for its upcoming film, Far Away. The company, founded by Matthias Haunholder and Matthias Mayr, explores the effect that skiing dangerous big mountain lines has on the family left back at home. The parents, wives, and siblings of the athletes explain what it’s like to sit at home while their kin ski these perilous Austrian faces. Due to an unfortunate lack of subtitles, many of you won’t understand what’s being said in the trailer, but what you will comprehend is that these guys have talent and aren’t afraid to go huge on some of the biggest mountains in the world.
“With Far Away, Matthias Haunholder and Matthias Mayr again come up with an extraordinary big mountain freeski movie. Although the name suggests that the guys traveled the world for this movie, it’s the total opposite. More than 90% was filmed in Austria. The name is much more a symbol for the distance between the athletes and their families. Not geographically, but in an emotional way. ‘There is no greater distance than between a mother and her child that she can’t protect!’ This sentence pretty much says everything about how a mum must feel when her son rides down vertical faces. This movie connects parents and kids. While the athletes are riding stunning faces, the parents, wives, siblings talk about how they feel back home. Far Away is a ski movie, but once again, different to all the others, and very interesting, not only for the ski community.”
