Having premiered to more than 30,000 fans at 250 big-screen events across 29 countries from Denver to the Dolomites and Vermont to Verbier, THIS IS HOME is now available online for anyone to watch and share. The film chronicles the unique development and bonds that make a skier, and tells personal stories about the environment that creates and the conditions that helped shape athletes including Candide Thovex, the world’s most famous and acclaimed freeskier, big mountain prodigy Johnny Collinson, 15-year old phenomenon Kelly Sildaru, and freeskiing icon Adam Delorme, among many others. From the icy streets of Finland to chasing powder in Montana and exploring steep lines in Zermatt, and to visiting Thovex’s playground of La Clusaz and a rally session in Verbier, THIS IS HOME profiles the ski community at its finest.
THIS IS HOME has been nominated for multiple awards by iF3, the Powder Awards, and International Free Ride Film Festival, including Film of the Year, People’s Choice, Best Male Street Segment (Antti Ollila – Finland), and Discovery of the Year (Alex Hall). The film was directed by Etienne Mérel, who also directed Faction’s 4 million-viewed series of webisodes, “We Are the Faction Collective.”
Faction skis are available to demo and to buy at GearHub Sports.
