The making of this film to capture a total solar eclipse in the arctic looks like an epic, and we’re guessing the resulting film, Eclipse, will be amazing. Just watch the trailer and set a reminder: The full film — released at the Banff Film Festival — will be available at Salomon Freeski TV on Nov. 10th.


As reported by the brand:

It was a ridiculous idea from the start. Travel to the edge of the earth to see one of the planet’s rarest events- a total solar eclipse in the Arctic. Faced with the likely reality of bad weather obscuring the sun and having to battle frigid, arctic temperatures and winds, the odds did not favor success. Despite this the Salomon Freeski TV team and set out on an expedition to realize photographer, Reuben Krabbe’s grand vision to capture a single unique image- one of skiing during a solar eclipse. Persistence, preparation and a positive attitude was a guarantee of nothing as March 20th, 2015, dawned. The fate of the expedition’s goal would rest entirely in the hands of the weather gods.
