Reusch is very proud to announce the partnership with award-winning filmmakers Sherpas Cinema on their newest feature documentary. The film, which will be released in Fall 2020, follows freeskiers Sam Anthamatten and Reusch athlete Jérémie Heitz as they travel to the world’s high-altitude mountain ranges and attempt to make their distinct mark on peaks over 6000m.
Following the huge success of the movie “La Liste” in 2016, capturing Jérémie Heitz skiing some of the Alps’ most iconic peaks in a way that had never been seen before, Jérémie and Sam are now taking their unique skiing-style to the next step. Throughout the entire project, Jérémie relies on his Reusch Jérémie Heitz Pro Model, a high-quality freeride glove that was tailored to the needs of the Swiss skier. As a tight-fitting glove with short cuff, robust goatskin leather on palm and fingers as well as a super flexible softshell on backhand, Jérémie’s choice offers outstanding tactility and great grip on the ski poles, ice axes and any kind of equipment and tools needed on his incredible adventures. A high-quality Polartec® Alpha® insulation provides optimum heat retention and warmth regulation in combination with great breathability, outstanding moisture management and simply a super soft and comfortable touch.
This new project has already filmed in both The Karakoram and The Andes, with plans to return to high altitude peaks such as The Himalaya within the next 10 months of production. The feature doc will be an in-depth character study of two athletes who are trying the push steep skiing to a whole new level, and write a whole new chapter in the history of one of the world’s oldest sports.
