Sam Favret in the footsteps of Karakoram
"Hunza : ski et culture au Pakistan" Sam Favret freeskier’s 4th movie, produced by Invade.
That Chamonix freeskier has chosen Hunza Valley in Pakistan to face the impressive Karakoram summits. A journey offering a wealth of authentic meetings, and a highly touching tribute to the passion for mountain.
Chamonix, February 17th 2019: This one movie isn’t Sam Favret first try! Since his 2014 first movie (Hangout), and after he’s been racing the most prestigious world freeski competitions (Red Bull Linecatcher, Survival Of Fittest...), the Chamoniard goes on exploring new lands with this last movie at the crossroads of documentary and ski experience.
Produced in 2018 the movie drags us right in the heart of legendary Hunza’s Valley famous for its centenarian inhabitants, and above all renowned for its breath-taking mountains.
Escorted with his sidekick Chamonix skiers Julien Herry (mountain guide) and Leo Slemett (2017 Freeride World Tour Winner), Sam dives in a 5500 meter-high in-depth journey, to the summits of Karakoram by Karimbad city. In that harsh setting where never-ending night walks and nearly 12 hour-treks used to rule their rhythm, our three partners would meet such a warm and welcoming local community: a sharp contrast to that hard environment. Narrated by the legendary American skier Glen Plake, Hunza’s story blends epic mountain performance with authentic human connexions in an absolute mind-blowing images flow.
