August. Officially one month closer to the end of summer and the start of another amazing winter. This down time is often referred to as “teaser season” and/or “premiere party” overload. To add to this shit show of snowboard movies, Absinthe Films has announced their European tour for their latest work of genius, “twel2ve“. Absinthe is already so respected that you just have to trust that their movies will always blow your mind.

With films like, “Nowhere”, “Neverland” and “Optimistic” making up their track record, it’s impossible not to get giddy in anticipation for the release of another ground-breaking film. We’re sure to witness some massive backcountry riding, intimidating lines, and intense cliff drops. “twel2ve” alongside YES Snowboards’ new movie “YES” will be taking over Europe so I guess this means we have to start saving up…like, now.
