Holmlands are thrilled to be back at the Ham Yard Theatre for the third year in a row, with the exclusive London screening of MSP Films latest epic movie "Ruin and Rose," alongside our headline sponsors Surefoot London and Pure Powder.
A surreal future leaves the world without water and consumed by sand: the Big Empty. A group of children survives alone on the edge of the endless desert in the ruin of the now. When a young boy unearths an ancient relic hinting at the lost wonders of winter, he sets off in search of the ghosts that once called the mountains their home. This bold cinematic experience balances stunning skiing with a wild and hopeful journey into the forgotten lands of myth and magic beyond the Empty.
Acclaimed writer/director Ben Sturgulewski joins the award-winning team at Matchstick Productions and their two decades of film making expertise to deliver “Ruin and Rose,” an epic creative vision brought to life by the talents of the world’s top skiers. Winter landscapes across the planet contrast seamlessly with a thoroughly-crafted story of environmental apocalypse, shot entirely within the otherworldly expanses of Africa’s Skeleton Coast. Unlike anything seen before, the dreamlike setting of this film sparks the imagination of not only action sports enthusiasts, but anyone with a beating heart.
Presented by Under Armour in spectacular 4K resolution, “Ruin and Rose” features veterans and newcomers alike, including Mark Abma, Sammy Carlson, Markus Eder, Zack Giffin, Sander Hadley, Russ Henshaw, Eric Hjorleifson, Lukas Joas, Sean Jordan, Bene Mayr, Evan McEachran, Michelle Parker, Ole Pavel, Tanner Rainville, Austin Ross, Fabio Studer, Cody Townsend, Noah Wallace, and others. “RUIN AND ROSE” was filmed on location in Alaska, Austria, British Columbia, Bulgaria, California, France, Switzerland, and the deserts of Namibia.
This exclusive screening will once again be hosted in the 190 seat state-of-the-art Ham Yard Theatre at the Ham Yard Hotel near Piccadilly. Bar facilities will be available at the theatre’s “Dive Bar,” with raffle tickets available to buy on the night, with a host of of amazing prizes up for grabs to help get you excited for the 206/17 winter season!
