In 1997 the snowboarding event Arctic Open was held for the first time in Tromsø. Legend has it that a local snowboarder made a spectacular jump and that a movie was in the making. But what really happened? This is the story behind the myth, about a group of Tromsø’s forgotten snowboard heroes, told in a heartfelt and enthusiastic way by the protagonists themselves. Thus, a film about a group of complete unknowns becomes proof that everything is possible, while at the same time being a melancholic reminder that nothing lasts forever.
After the premiere of THERE’S ALWAYS NEXT SEASON Saturday 29 September there'll be a live music screening of 1997 FOREVER.
