Sherpas Cinema presents a Short film "The Innovator"
The Innovator escorts the viewer through the backcountry of Banff National Park to experience stepping into the unknown-told from the point of view of local wheelchair athlete, innovator and backcountry enthusiast Christian Bagg, but also Chris Rubens and Eric 'Hoji' Hjorleifson in parallel. We join Christian on his journey to overcome his challenges and achieve his dream of Nordic skiing in the backcountry, joined by his mates Chris and Hoji. The Innovator shows how adventure can push our limits, test our resolve and plot our own ‘unknown’.

The viewer meets local visual artist Dan Hudson as he ruminates on the very mountains that define his lifestyle, and inspires his artistic expression.
