“Warren Miller’s 2014 film, No Turning Back, pays homage to the 65 years of mountain culture and adventure filmmaking that has lead WME to every end of the winter world. We’re taking a legacy that dates back to before skis had edges and mountains had condos and we’re running with it to the steepest peaks around the globe and back to the Mom and Pop hills that define skiing and riding.
Since he began creating films in 1949, Warren Miller has known that as skiers and riders, there’s no need to look back, we have to continuously drive to keep our edge and chase the snow. This year, we prove that not much has changed when it comes to why it is these athletes tilt and turn down mountains and pray for storms. Sheer delight. Welcome this winter season and remember there’s No Turning Back.”
Head down to the base of River Run this Saturday the 6th for complimentary yoga classes at 8:45am and 10:00am. It will be in conjunction with the last weekend of the gondola, so all participants will receive a voucher for a reduced rate on the gondola.
The Family of Woman Film Festival was launched in 2007 by Friends of UNFPA Board Member, Peggy Elliott Goldwyn, in Sun Valley, to bring attention to the work of UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund. The first year, four films were presented highlighting the status of women in the developing world.
The festival has grown to include five films, both drama and documentary, along with guest speakers from UNFPA, who give free lectures to the public through the sponsorship of The Ketchum Community Library, as well as visits to local schools along with guest film-makers. Other local collaborators include The Community School, The Advocates for Survivors of Domestic Violence, The Wood River Religious Leadership Council, and St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation.
As well as the main Festival, other films have been presented as special events and a photographic exhibit by local women photographers of women and children in the developing world was presented, from which a series of note cards were developed to benefit UNFPA.
