When we are young we chase and pursue our dreams without hesitation, with the pure curiosity of a child. Solely driven by the need to capture the pure feeling of living in the moment. And although our grown-up lives are sometimes burdened by responsibilities and the awareness of the complexity of life, we are still driven by the constant search for the special moments. Moments, in which we experience pure happiness, independence, fear and freedom – they keep pushing us to explore our limits. In PURE, the second ‘Shades of Winter’ movie by Austrian freeskier and filmmaker Sandra Lahnsteiner an all-female group of exceptional skiers take the viewers on a journey of unspoilt adventures.

It's time to get to know Jenn Shelton, one of the most outspoken voices in running. Known for her shenanigans featured in the bestselling book Born to Run, Shelton is both a runner and an author in her own right; far more complicated than appears at a casual glance. She makes her home in a small van, known originally as Hi-C (for its initial inclination to high center), owning only what it can carry. She travels around the Mountain West spreading her unique approach to the wilderness. This is an insider's view in black & white.
