The Will to Fly

1 x 52 / 1 x 95 HD

This inspirational film tells the extraordinary story of Olympic aerial skiing gold medallist Lydia Lassila as she strives to become the first woman in history to perform the most complex and dangerous manoeuvre of any acrobatic sport – a quadruple twisting, triple somersault on skis.

Combining incredible sports archive footage and interviews with Lydia, her family and coaches, the film charts her rise from aspiring young gymnast to freestyle skiing champion and her incredible return to the sport after motherhood, as she aims to do what no woman has ever done before.
