End of Snow

VAT2019 I 309
SynopsisDr. Jane Zelikova is a tropical ecologist living in the mountains of Wyoming and Colorado. She dreams of snow in the summer and tropical forests in the dead of winter. But her snow-capped Fourteeners are changing – no longer bringing the deep winter snowpack once promised. The film embarks on a journey into the mountains to find the tales of the past, present and future of snow. And like any good story, the characters she meets will help show her the way, a map for living in a world beyond the end of snow.
