“I’ve spent the last two January’s skiing and traveling in Japan. This is a place unlike any other. A place where old meets new, where tradition clashes with modernization and where beauty meets chaos. What’s left is a culture so rich and diverse you have to see it to believe it.” –Mattias Evangelista
In his latest film release, Mattias Evangelista captures the otherworldly nature of the mountains, culture, and people of Japan. For a westerner, the differences are as stark as they are breathtaking and the beauty of it all comes together in this short film about skiing in the land of the rising sun.
