Oregon 2016 83 mins. In English

Tucked in the trees of Mt. Hood, a young snowboarder camps alone. Meet 19-year-old Sadie Ford, an introspective young rider who spends the winter season living with her dog Scooter on the slopes above Government Camp in the simple pursuit of coasting down the hill on her board. Much like surfers who roam the world searching for the perfect wave, Sadie has her own simple pleasures, which Matlow reveals with a quiet eye and calm flow like that of snow falling. House parties and brief interactions with family are the only break in a solo quest tempered by melancholy when the winter season begins to grow shorter. (83 mins.)
