Faction Presents: Roots

Faction Ski’s third feature film uncovers the foundations of free-skiing as seen by the current generation of skiers.

From the caves of the Dolomites to the nightscapes of Ruka and the mythic peaks surrounding Verbier, ROOTS takes us on a journey through the vibrant spectrum of freeskiing.

In co-production with Red Bull Media House.
