The video, directed by Maceo Frost, is titled “Ishtar X Tussilago” and features Bäcklund and her friends Caroline Boström, Kim Hansson, Sammy Hasselberg and Sander Hasselberg tearing down Norwegian hills as Bäcklund muses about the value of chasing your dreams.
The cinematography is flawless, but perhaps even more notable is just how hard these five girls skate. These remote hills are absolutely massive and one small error means almost certain injury, as showcased by the clip beginning with Bäcklund dislocating her shoulder.
And Bäcklund, who describes herself as a nomad, artist and skateboarder and says she’s been “living on the road and spreading stoke” over the past few years, seems to have struck a chord with her message of following your dreams: the video already has more than 35,000 views and was chosen as a Vimeo Staff Pick.
