Far From Home Trailer

In addition to writing snowboard reviews, contributing editor Zeppelin Zeerip is involved with a film project that you should know about.

Far From Home: Uganda to the Tetons is a documentary that tells the story of Brolin Mawejj, who found his way from Uganda to America at the age of 12, only to face abandonment and isolation before finding his niche in the snowboard community.

The film, currently in production, will retrace Brolin’s steps from his early life in America to his remarkable achievements as a state wrestler, nationally-ranked snowboarder, and neuro-oncology intern at Harvard, along with his intentions of representing Uganda in the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Currently, the production team is raising funds to travel to Uganda with Brolin, his first time back to the country since he left eight years ago.

So after you’ve checked out the trailer, head over to their Kickstarter page, where you can continue to follow and support Far From Home (farfromhomemovie.com).
