THE OTHER ONE: THE LONG, STRANGE TRIP OF BOB WEIR
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20 | 7 PM
Drop out of school to ride with the Merry Pranksters. Form America's most enduring jam band. Become a family man and father. Reconnect with your parents late in life. Never stop chasing the muse. Bob Weir took his own path to and through superstardom as rhythm guitarist for The Grateful Dead. TFF alum Mike Fleiss (God Bless Ozzy Osbourne) reimagines the whole, wild journey in a magnetic rock doc and concert film that never quite leads to where you think it is going. In Weir's distinctively styled words: “You have to see it to see it.”
Guided by bandmates, contemporaries, followers, family, and, of course, Weir himself, The Other One is an ambitious look at the counter-culture and music scenes that defined The Dead. Weir is its rock, delivering unexpected lessons on handling success, especially when it gains popularity you never dreamed possible.
WARREN MILLER'S NO TURNING BACK
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22 | 7 PM
Warren Miller's 2014 film, No Turning Back, pays homage to the 65 years of mountain culture and adventure filmmaking that has lead WME to every end of the winter world. We're taking a legacy that dates back to before skis had edges and mountains had condos and we're running with it to the steepest peaks around the globe and back to the Mom and Pop hills that define skiing and riding.
Since he began creating films in 1949, Warren Miller has known that as skiers and riders, there’s no need to look back, we have to continuously drive to keep our edge and chase the snow. This year, we prove that not much has changed when it comes to why it is these athletes tilt and turn down mountains and pray for storms. Sheer delight. Welcome this winter season and remember there’s No Turning Back.
