Special to the Nelson Star

Matchstick Productions, the seven-time winner of the sport’s coveted Movie of the Year award, is pleased to announce its latest offering to skiing’s celluloid legacy. Attack of La NiĂąa will be playing at the Capitol Theatre this Saturday. Attack of La NiĂąa is a recap of one of the longest and deepest North American winters on record, served up courtesy of the worldwide weather phenomenon known as la niĂąa. “Last winter continued to amaze us as the season went on. Weather patterns relentlessly pounded the western US and Canada,â€? said executive producer Murray Wais. “Deep snow and epic conditions made it nearly impossible to stray too far from home, creating opportunities to go deeper into zones that we’ve explored in the past. We were able to check out some spots that we’d never even thought of as possibilities before, and the payoff was greater than we ever could have expected!â€? Along for the ride is Matchstick staple Sean Pettit, throwing down and dominating powder across his home province of BC. Follow the journey of Frenchman Richard Permin as he chases storms throughout Canada, and watch the exploits of

Be sure to bask in the persona of skiing’s funniest character, Colby West, on his quest for the “ultimate run.� This breathtaking film features an eclectic mix of high definition camera work and awe-inspiring footage captured using the most state of the art equipment available, including slow motion Phantom cameras, heli-mounted Cineflex rigs, and ultra high end point-of-view camera angles.
