A documentary filmmaker follows a group of six young snowboarders, chronicling their powerful friendship, passion for snowboard, and their violent desire to live the present. Despite that apparent symbiosis that unite them, the life of Val, Phil, Laurence, Coco, John and Sébass takes an unexpected turn when they discover that their recklessness can’t stay inconsequential.

Sophie Dupuis, native from Abitibi, specialises in screenwriting and directing fiction movies since 2007. After the disturbing “Faillir”, the touching “J’viendrai t’chercher ’ and the cute “Félix et Malou”, movies that have known an international recognition throughout festivals, Sophie offers us the brutality of “L’hiver et la violence”. Shot with non-actors as leading characters, the film strikes with a realism that fits directly her artistic approach.
