Following a snow-filled winter that took the crew on epic journeys across the globe, the Colorado-based filmmakers at Matchstick Productions are excited to release the first theatrical trailer for RUIN AND ROSE today in advance of their upcoming ski film. The new movie promises viewers much more than just skiing, with riveting narrative scenes filmed in the barren desert landscapes of Africa.

RUIN AND ROSE takes its audience to “a world without water, consumed by sand,” as described by acclaimed writer/director Ben Sturgulewski – a new addition to MSP’s production team for 2016. “We set out to create a bold cinematic experience unlike anything else that ski movie audiences have seen before,” says Sturgulewski. The film’s storyline follows a young boy on his journey to discover the lost wonders of winter in a time when endless dunes dominate the landscape. His quest is juxtaposed against images of winter in the here and now, creating a balance between spectacular skiing and a journey into forgotten lands of myth and magic.
