Iconic snowboarder Travis Rice and friends embark on a multi-year mission to follow the North Pacific Gyre's flow. As Rice and the crew experience the highs and lows of a journey unlike any previously attempted, cutting-edge cinematography captures some of the world's most remote environments bringing breathtaking scenery and thrilling action to viewers worldwide.
Art of Flight is arguably one of the greatest snowboarding/ski films ever made. The fact that it took five years for the follow up and this is what we are left with is truly disappointing. I didn't' clock it, but I can't imagine there is more than 20 minutes of actual snowboard footage in this film. And the remaining 60 minutes plus of footage isn't enough to make up for the lack of riding. The editing is choppy, the "message" of the film is convoluted (Is it a film about global warming? Is it a film about how amazing Travis Rice is? Is it a film about the water cycle? Is it a film about the pursuit of_____? Is it a snowboarding film?) and the riding is lacking (didn't I mention that already??). Truly disappointed.
