Mixing old 16mm footage and new footage, The Important Places captures the heart of life one lens at a time.
After the short intermission at the BANFF Mountain Film Festival, I was introduced to a rare 9-minute gem that truly captures the essence of life. The Important Places is a short document about the special bond between a father and son while exploring the necessity of returning to “The Important Places” in their life. Winner of Best Short Mountain Film, The Important Places narrates the bond of father and son and captures the life lessons of family and what it means to be human.
The short film shows the father and son’s time spent on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. In a matter of minutes, the film explores the growth of these two men, through different stages of their lives and how the silver lining between them, the Colorado River, brought them back the most important place of all. Beautifully shot and skillfully crafted, The Important Places sticks with you as it unveils the breath of life right before your very eyes.
