The team from Absinthe Films has explored the effects of a changing planet in the first winter to show the undeniable effects of global warming, For those who live to snowboard, these changes can be perceived as impossible challenges or creative opportunities. Absinthe reconfirms it's ability to find the best conditions when the rest have given up or resigned themselves to the park. Following fifteen individuals through their interpretation of this winter, Absinthe forges another unforgettable snowboard film with it's newest release. Optimistic? will feature some of the most unique and creative snowboarding to date as well as some of the world's top snowboarders. There were some important changes in the crew: Romain de Marchi is back ripping in his good aggressive style, after he had to skip a season because of injuries. Danny Davis, voted 'newcomer of the year ' by snowboarder magazine, was joining Absinthe for the first time. He amazed everyone with the consistency in which he stomped trick after trick. In Europe three new members were added to the family: Marco Feichter from Austria, Hans Ahlund from Sweden and Sylvain Bourbousson from France. And also for the first time part of the crew was Annie Boulanger, residing in snow blessed Whistler. The focus of Absinthe films has always been to present the highest level of progressive snowboarding to it's audience in a fresh, inclusive and engaging way. Focused on establishing new standards rather than keeping up with pack. Watch and stay optimistic.
