With FAR AWAY Matthias Haunholder and Matthias Mayr again come up with a extraordinary Big Mountain Freeski Movie. Although the name suggests that the guys travelled the world for this movie, it´s the totally opposite. More than 90% were filmed in Austria. The name is much more a symbol fort he distance between the athletes and their families. Not geographically, but in a 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, wife, 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
