'Amputee Skier Shreds Expectations': Behind the Scenes

"[The film] is not for just people with disabilities, it's for people that don't know what their fully capable of," says adaptive backcountry skier Vasu Sojitra. This incredible athlete talks to the Banff Centre about why he chose to be profiled in Out on a Limb and how the crew got some of the amazing shots.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society. Know of a great short film that should be part of our Showcase?
