Culture Catch and Napapijri are pleased to continue our Film Salon series with a private VIP screening of award-winning documentary Steep with the director Mark Obenhaus and the executive producer Tom Yellin of the Documentary Group on Thursday, November 13th at 7 pm at the 149 Mercer Street (between Prince & Houston), NYC, 212-431-4490.
The 9th film of our monthly series celebrates the world of extreme skiing.
Praise for the film from Chicago Tribune critic Scott Schueller:
"Few documentaries are able to isolate their purpose from an audience's craving for human interest stories. There always seems to be a character who leaves the lasting impression, rather than the film's subject matter. Steep is one of those rare endeavors able to touch on the human condition without neglecting the film's true star: big-mountain skiing."
Following the screening there will be a robust audience Q & A/discussion with the director and executive producer that will be taped for a future video podcast. And we will co-host a private cocktail and food reception with our invited guests before the screening begins.
We're giving away two pairs of tickets to this special evening; just send us an email answering these four questions:

What American director has made the most ski movies?
