The Ski Channel Film Tour continues to storm the nation this week as it takes hold in Palm Desert for 4 shows at the beautiful Cinemas Palme d’Or theatre Wednesday, March 9th through Saturday, March 12th.  All 4 shows are at 7:15PM. 

The film starring Bode Miller, Lindsey Vonn, Reggie Crist, Lynsey Dyer, Bobby Brown, Chris Davenport, Leif Whittaker, Stephani Victor and many other incredible athletes is a unique portrayal of the typical ski film and is garnering extensive praise. “The Story manages to do the impossible.  Disguised as a ski documentary, it is actually a riveting examination of what compels us–especially the most driven of us–to excel when facing the most extreme circumstances.  Along the way, we meet amazing and eccentric characters; heroes, misfits, heroes who are misfits.  In the process, we learn more than we could have imagined about ourselves.”  Tony Berg, Record Producer – Bob Dylan, Wallflowers, Till Tuesday,

Whereas a who’s who of celebrities came to the Manns Chinese Theatre Premiere, notably absent were the pro tennis players who made up the soundtrack to the film.  At Wednesday NIghts show, all the pro players should be out in the full force.  The Bryan Brothers and Sam Querrey will be in attendance along with a cast of others.

The soundtrack for the film was composed of nearly all tennis players and included the Bryan Brothers, the Jensen Brothers, the Seguso Brothers, Mark Witsken, Joey Ryan and the films director and founder of The Tennis Channel, Steve Bellamy.
