Locals Alex Hall, Mac Forehand blur lines between art, skiing in Faction’s newest film ‘Abstract’ debuting Dec. 5 at the Santy

Abstract professes to not just be a ski film, but a visual symphony that transcends the traditional boundaries of the sport.

PARK CITY, Utah — Software start-up, Hence, has partnered with local establishments Jackson’s Base Camp and Jackson’s Hideaway to host a special screening of two Faction film shorts as well as the local premiere of its fourth feature film, Abstract, at Park City Library’s Jim Santy Auditorium on Dec. 5 at 7 p.m.

Abstract was co-produced by Faction in conjunction with Red Bull Media and include Park City’s own Alex Hall, who won the 2020 Winter Games Slopestyle Gold Medal, and Mac Forehand, who secured gold in the 2023 X Games Big Air.

The film includes sequences shot in the bustling streets of Japan, pristine powder pillows of British Columbia, and meticulously groomed terrain parks of Switzerland and Italy.

Abstract professes to not just be a ski film, but a visual symphony that transcends the traditional boundaries of the sport. Each location becomes a blank canvas, epitomizing the fusion of athleticism and artistic flair, essentially blurring the lines between skiing and true visual art.

Park City Ski & Snowboard and the Utah Avalanche Center have joined as non-profit beneficiaries for the event with all net proceeds from the sales of food and beer being donated to these organizations. Food and beer will be provided by Tina’s Bakery and Offset Bier.

Those in attendance can take part in a giveaway with chances to win merch, experiences, and educational courses from Faction, Hence, Jackson’s Base Camp, Jackson’s Hideaway, and the Utah Avalanche Center.

Tickets are free and can be secured now through Brown Paper Tickets. Showtime is 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.
