About the Movie
The Little Things is a snowboard movie project based on environmentally conscious riders who are inspirational through their riding, as well as their sustainable ways of living and thinking. The film is an initiative taken on by professional snowboarder Marie-France Roy and directed by Filmmaker Darcy Turenne in which all the riders are bringing to life the importance of protecting and living in balance with our environment. 100% of proceeds from the film will be donated to Protect Our Winters (POW) and The David Suzuki Foundation (DSF). The goal is to bring snowboarding one step ahead while inspiring positive change that will secure the same lifestyle and quality of life that we have for future generations.
Powerful, educational and an incredible film!
Powerful, educational and an incredible film. Produced by Marie France Roy the best female rider of all time, in my opinion. I watched it and then watched it again!
not what i expected, but excellent
i was expecting something more traditional snowboard movie type, but with maybe a bit of an environmental flare. instead i got a very personal environmental documentary with a lot of snowboarding mixed in. not blockbuster stunts like jumping out of helicopters and landing the first sextuplet cork, but more like what a fun powder day with friends would be like, if your friends were REALLY good at snowboarding.
as for the message itself, it has something for everyone. it features ideas such as not leaving a car idling or holding onto used cigarette butts instead of littering, to building your own tiny home using mostly reused/reclaimed/recycled materials. of course, not all of us have the ability to just drop life and build a tiny home (dream right there!), but who isn’t capable of not idling their car and not littering? and beyond the typical climate change angle, there was also a look inward, into how living a smaller, simpler and more thoughtful lifestyle (which also happens to be more environmental and cheaper) allows you to do more with your life and since you have to work less to afford your life.
meghann o’brien/jaad kuujus’s part really stood out to me. it was incredibly personal and informative to this ignorant american who was only vaguely aware of both the racial struggles up north and how they impacted the environment. i think it was the capturing of raw emotion of all the riders featured in connection to their environments that really sets this film apart.
