A FINE LINE premiered on December 17th at the Palau de la Musica Catalana, Barcelona to three packed screenings. With Kilian on hand to present his film, the audience were thrilled to hear him speak about the first year of Summits of My Life.
“Someone said we are our dreams, that if we don’t dream we are no longer alive.
A Fine Line takes us on a breathtaking journey over the spectacular snow covered peaks of the Alps as we join a small group of extraordinary mountain athletes in their pursuit of happiness and fulfillment.
Kilian Jornet is an exceptional sportsman. At only 25, the ski mountaineering racer and ultra trail runner is already a multiple record holder and winner of numerous world titles in ski alpinism and mountain marathons. For him and others born in the mountains, the challenges and dangers of their environment are part of everyday life. The search for happiness can come at a very high price, but the pursuit of their passion remains an overwhelming motivation.
“We can’t be sure we’ll find it, but we’re going in search of happiness.”
To watch the northern lights dance across the night sky, while feeling the frosty night air against your nose poking out of your warm down sleeping bag, sensing the presence of the mighty peaks looming on the edges of the glacier you're camping on, might remind you that sometimes the stars align. Sometimes the snow stabilizes for two days in a record avalanche year. Sometimes you find yourself in the midst of northern Europe's finest descents at that time.
