Ashes to Agassiz/BuilderLocation: GW Graham Middle-Secondary, 45955 Thomas Rd, Chilliwack
Prepare yourselves for a night of fully throttle mountain bike shredding. This instalment of our Fall Film Series will bring to you two amazing mountain bike films sure to make your palms sweat and get you itchin’ to hop on two wheels.
Building a trail is both an art and a science. The best ones are aesthetic wonders, a stark line of dirt snaking through the most scenic bits of land, a mountain biker’s landscape painting brought to life. Unfortunately there’s no specific formula for trail building – it takes years to master the alchemy of crafting flow. From your first shaky pedal strokes to the game-changing moves of the sport’s top pros, our sport is shaped by shovels and pick axes in endless pursuit of the perfect ride. Builder tells the story of trail building, through the eyes of some of our sport’s best riders and most respected builders.
Ashes to Agassiz
Next up is the latest work from Sherpa Cinemas, Ashes to Agassiz. It’s been a journey, you could say. A real barnburner. A man at the top of his professional prowess, his mountain bike a natural extension of him, one of the best riders the sport has ever seen. But like all great heroes, adversity comes a knocking. For Graham Agassiz, a relatively benign descent—one he’s done a hundred times before—reached out with its wicked limb and smacked him down. Shoved a fat slice of humble pie in his kisser. With his neck broken and a career in jeopardy, the road back to the top is now lined with dangers and demons.
Viewer Discretion: There is mild nudity throughout this film.
