The Simple Joy of Skiing

published May 2014 - 825 views

Nestled in the Republic of Georgia's Caucasus Mountains is the bucolic village of Ushguli. This town is the backdrop to this simple vignette about a Georgian teenager who likes to ski. Armed with only meagre tools, 15 year-old Gigi Charqseliani takes us on a harrowing ride down his favourite after-school run. In a region plagued by the usual hardships of rural life, Gigi shows us that all it takes is a little mettle and a lot of heart to experience the simple escapes of gliding on snow.
