“From The Ash” is a visual metaphor for pushing forward as the world seemingly crumbles around you. In May of 2018 the Ute Park wildfire burnt 36,740 acres; a large swath of it was on the Philmont Scout Ranch.
Directed by Ryan Gibb, “From The Ash” is Gibb’s first foray back into feature mountain bike filmmaking since he and Derek Frankowski made the classic “Life Cycles” a decade ago. The culmination of one of the more challenging film shoots imaginable, “From The Ash” is a staggering combination of perseverance, incredibly creative filmmaking, and the masterful riding of Nico Vink. The result is a short film we’ll remember for a long time.
Thank you to the Boy Scouts of America for allowing us to film on location at Philmont. For the best experience, please use headphones or a great sound system.
