Description
With the power of impressive pictures and portraits of strong characters , “Dreamcatchers” gives evidence that even today it is still possible to choose a life aside of the classical social guidelines, to live a dream and to find to oneself. Tormod Granheim was the first to succeed in the first descent on skis from the Mount Everest north face, where his best friend fell to his death. The film also accompanies Rune Gjednes on his expeditions across the North and the South Pole. Together with Nina Skramstad we travel by dog sledge, and with Cecilie Skog we experience the contrast between high altitude climbing and polar expeditions. The director Lothar Hofer, a world famous Telemark skier, tells his own story, about his potentially lethal injury and about the social pressures to earn better money with a “normal” job.
