Swift.Silent.Deep the first true historical documentation of hardcore ski bum culture in North America. Swift.Silent.Deep is the story of a secretive, underground crew who call themselves the Jackson Hole Air Force, and the salad days of Benny Wilson, Howard Henderson, and their band of civil disobedients in the unknown realm of Out-of Bounds. The influence of the Jackson Hole Air Force has reached far beyond Jackson; JHAF members won the first three World Extreme Skiing Championships and are directly responsible for pioneering the big mountain skiing in the world’s most incredible playground –Alaska, which brought about the fat ski revolution, and changed the face of skiing forever. This exploration into the roots of the modern American ski bum features many familiar faces in the action sports world like Warren Miller, Scot Schmidt, and the late Doug Coombs.
An action packed tale of winter sports history, SWIFT.SILENT.DEEP. goes far beyond the typical action sports formula creating a documentary experience that satisfies intellectual curiosity. Our amazing archives and classic soundtrack will take you back in time and we’d like to give a huge word of THANKS to all the contributors to this film. Guys like Rick Hunt, Howard Henderson, the late Dick Barrymore, Roger Brown, Warren Miller and the boys at TGR for their incredible images and most especially, Focus Productions.
