What: "Few Words" film premier
When: Wednesday, 7 and 9 p.m.
Where: Boulder Theater
Professional skier Candide Thovex will stop in Boulder for the U.S. premier of his new film “Few Words” at the Boulder Theater on Wednesday. The documentary details the life of French skier and how he shaped and changed big mountain skiing and freeskiing.
The film features commentary from photographers, professional skiers and Thovex's family. Thovex speaks briefly at the end of the film, but otherwise his voice is absent, hence the film's name.
“It's not about competitions and medals, not about trying to do things better but always in a different way,” Thovex says in the film. “Skiing all comes down to creativity. There are no set rules. I look at it as a way out a way to forget about everything else. Being out there keeps me grounded and reminds me how insignificant we really are and what life is really about.”
