To welcome the start of the 2018 snowsports season, the Snowy Mountains Grammar School snowsports program will be hosting a screening of the film Finding the Line at the Jindabyne Cinema on Thursday, 21 June at 6:30 pm.

The 21st of June is the winter solstice. The screening of Finding the Line on this date is, therefore, a wonderful way for our school community and wider community to share their excitement for the upcoming snowsports season!

In addition to Finding the Line’s obvious connection to SMGS snowsports program, the storyline links to our wellbeing dialogue around growth mindset, grit, and resilience and the integral part our mindset plays in the success of our pursuits (both on and off the snow).

All profits from the event will go to the SMGS P&F.

X Games gold medallist, FIS world champion and Winter Olympian Anna Segal and her Freeride World Tour competitor and big mountain skiing sister, Nat Segal are proud to present their first documentary film, Finding The Line.

Finding the Line explores fear, its paralysing grip on humans and how it affects our decision-making. The Australian born and bred Segal sisters use their skiing to understand fear and how it manifests in the two siblings’ lives.

Throughout their careers as professional skiers, Anna and Nat have both constantly been challenged by fear. Yet, despite being brought up under the same roof, they have learned to deal with it in almost contrasting ways, neither leading them to the success they dreamed of.

A heartfelt journey on the knife’s edge of big mountains throughout Canada and France pushes them to their physical and emotional limits. Then the extreme skiing mecca of Alaska pushes them beyond.

The Australian sisters soon realise that the most important lessons lie within each other’s approach. Equipped with greater insight, they negotiate the fine balance between staying in their comfort zone and taking too much risk, learning that sometimes to move forward, you need to understand what is holding you back.

The film features an award-winning team including director Bjarne Salén (Best Documentary Powder Award, Best in Snow Banff Film Festival), executive producer Fran Derham (First Love) and AFI nominated editor Sara Edwards, with guest appearances from skiing legends Mike Douglas, Seth Morrison and Freeride World Tour champion Lorraine Huber.
