Powerhouse snowboard filmers Absinthe Films debut their 2013/14 feature Dopamine at the Roxy Theatre this Friday, Oct. 4. The production spent lots of time in B.C.’s Southeast mountains, including many sorties into Eagle Pass Heliskiing’s tenure in the Monashees. Eagle Pass office manager Kiel Mason said the crew and riders came in February for a couple of weeks but got hooked, sticking around for much longer. “It was amazing. They are a great crew that come to work and get stuff done. We are all very excited to be a part of this movie,” Mason said. “What came out of it is amazing riding for sure.” It wouldn’t be a Monashee outing without some pillows. Look out for rider Jay Robinson’s tight line into pillow sluff and Danny Kass’s ender pillow line/air, both filmed with Eagle Pass. Other featured riders include Victor De Le Rue, Bode Merrill, Brandon Cocard, Jason Robinson, Manuel Diaz, Blair Habenicht, Cale Zima, Nils Arvidsson, Rusty Ockenden, Mathieu Crepél, Mat Schaer, Sylvain Bourbousson, Forrest Shearer, Scot Brown and Wolfgang Nyvelt. And the photo? In the image above, Blair Habernicht and Jason Robinson waiting for morning light while on an excursion with Eagle Pass this spring. (Absinthe Films image). Expect the whole Eagle Pass crew out for the big snowboard flik pre-season show of the season at the Roxy. Riders Blair Habenicht and Rusty Ockenden have confirmed appearances at the Roxy premiere.  Doors at 7:30, show at 8. Tickets ($10) at The Cabin, Society Snow & Skate or at the door.                             — Aaron Orlando
