Hokkaido Calling, a new short film created by Sherpas Cinema (represented in the U.S.by Accomplice Media) for Audi, follows big mountain ski legends Sam Smoothy, Jérémie Heitz and Dane Tudor on an epic road trip in search of deep powder, undiscovered paths and the chance to stand where no one has stood before. Directed by Sherpas Cinema’s Leo Hoorn, the 8-minute film is filled with breathtaking skiing as the trio of freeriders spend two weeks touring the rugged mountains of Japan’s northern island in an Audi Quattro. Smoothy, Heitz and Tudor soar down steep volcanos, slalom through untouched forests and relax in wooden baths called onsen. Ultimately, their journey leads them to a towering hydroelectric dam whose dizzyingly sheer side is crisscrossed with snow covered concrete barriers. In the film’s climax, they dive down the pyramid-like structure in a wild, buckling ride.
