Filmed in beautiful Saas Fee and featuring pow shots a plenty, The Year of the Rooster is one the best short films I’ve seen for ages.
Despite a shitty winter in the Alps last year the Taylormadefilms crew and friends managed to score Swiss powder. Saas Fee is a special place – mega terrain up high (watch out for the crevasses though, eh) and those beautifully spaced Valaisian larch low down. The town is full of charm and there are few places in the Alps with such an impressive mountain backdrop.
The Year of the Rooster is a down to earth and super entertaining film with a gritty feel, a great soundtrack and a righteous message. You need to watch it.
