Not since Craig Kelly, Dave Basterrachea, and Brian Savard traveled to Iran for TWSNOW’s Clear And Presesnt Danger feature in 1997 has the country’s mountains been ridden by American pros. Boarders Without Boarders is raising funds for a documentary about the snowboard scene and youth culture there featuring Gabi Viteri, Hannah Teeter, Stevie Bell and one other rider (TBD). It’s been a long and challenging process to get the approvals for the trip but filmmakers Marjan Tehrani and Nick Catania, along with Producer Brian Sachson are hoping to begin shooting next March.
Kickerstarter fund raising ends September 16.
