Groundwork, Brotherhood Films’ first full length film, captures the essence of freeskiing; great outdoors, freedom and friendship. Follow the Brotherhood throughout the 2010-11 season from urban settings all around the province of Québec, to the incredible mountains of Colorado, Oregon and British Columbia. Witness outstanding young skiers share with us their love and passion for the sport with their amazing performances and an inside look into their season.

Every project begins with a base, a foundation; every project begins with groundwork.
