This powerful short documentary came about from a challenge from Current TV’s “A Chance At Slamdance”. The problem: the project needed to be delivered in 2 weeks. Company founder Susan Anton discovered the subject matter in a women’s health magazine and the film project was born. It took ten days and a total budget of $387.61 to bring this project to life. It was one of three films from over eighteen hundred submissions to be chosen to premiere at Slamdance. This project was a true labor of love about the emotional triumph of snowboarder Amy Purdy.
