Far above the 60th parallel in Canada's great white North, there exists a magical kingdom made entirely out of snow and ice. Every year in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, just as the temperature starts to climb out of its -30 slumber, the Snowking and his legion of loyal "sno-ldiers" create one of the world's coolest experiences. From the first block of ice cut, to the final celebrations and set to a soundtrack of the NWT's best musicians, Triumph of the Chill is a "rock-umentary" that will bring out the fort building - snowball throwing kid in everyone!

**Please note: The film was shot in 2009 primarily on an SD camera so the file is 720x480. We will be looking into up-rezing the project to HD in the near future so stay tuned, but it's still totally awesome in SD!
