In “Ruin and Rose,” a new film from Matchstick Productions and writer/director Ben Sturgulewski, a group of children survives after the world has lost its water and everything has turned to sand. In the ruins of our civilization, a boy finds a snow globe, the first hint of winters past and mountains of snow. Throughout the 70-minute film, footage of world-class skiing—from the likes of Mark Abma and Cody Townsend—is contrasted with the tale of environmental apocalypse, images of Alaska interspersed with those of Namibia. It’s at once surreal, thought-provoking, and a great ski movie. “Ruin and Rose” will debut September 16 at Aspen’s Wheeler Opera house, followed by a full tour.
