About this submission

During the pandemic, my sister and I took up slacklining as a way to connect with one another and help clear our minds. Given the positive impact slacklining had on my sister and I's relationship and our mental health, I chose slacklining as the subject of my college thesis film. This documentary tells the story of slackliner, Nathan Paulin as he prepares for his next big event. As he does, he learns to not only balance on the line, but balance family and work life as well.
