“Not since "Man on Wire" has the psyche of the adrenaline-junkie been plumbed so grippingly.”~NZIFF

Aroview: Kiwi filmmaker Toa Fraser examines the life of world-champion freestyle skier Jossi Wells, who travels and trains with a troupe of extreme-sport eccentrics called The Flying Frenchies. Spectacular stunts are featured including base-jumping (from moving vehicles), human catapulting and perilous tight-rope walking, with Fraser capturing both the adrenaline ride and it's existential meaning, arising from the relationship between true freedom and absolute fear.
