From Rossignol — ROSSIGNOL is proud to present the story of athlete Sebastian Copeland’s unsupported trip to the North Pole and back through the DVD release of Into the Cold: A Journey Of The Soul, in correlation with Earth Day 2011.
A Tribeca Film Festival favorite, Into the Cold: A Journey Of The Soul captures in vivid and personal detail, environmental advocate and adventurer, Sebastian Copeland, as he prepares and ultimately embarks on a journey few have successfully made.
Over the course of two months, Copeland and comrade Keith Heger, battle staggering conditions across more than 400 miles of frozen Arctic, in order to reach the quickly vanishing North Pole.
“Reaching the North Pole was a childhood dream, one that will sadly not be afforded to children today,” said Copeland, who is both behind and in front of the camera in the film. “Images from North Pole expeditions are very rare; it is a privilege to bring this exceptional beauty into people’s homes.”
Accomplished through a combination of courage, endurance and pure determination, Into the Cold: A Journey Of The Soul transports us into the mind of an individual facing insurmountable odds, while showcasing the enormously vast and empty beauty of the Arctic.
Rossignol is proud to support this achievement and help bring greater awareness to the irreversible effects of climate change.
Into the Cold: A Journey Of The Soul, is the first HD film to document such footage and guaranteed to touch anyone who embraces and finds solace in nature and the winter landscape.
“Maneuvering rubble fields and pressure ridges can place considerable stress on the skis inducing bending forces that exceeded my worst fears. Breaking skis in this environment would literally place your life in danger.
“In the harshest environment on Earth, where rescue is uncertain and your gear can mean the difference between life and death, I trust Rossignol.” –Sebastian Copeland
