Masters of Slack

A film by Matthias Edlinger 

Bouncing on a slackline Jaan Roose and Andy Lewis have probably had more ups and downs in their lives than most other people. These two very different personalities are united by a deep love of their sport and a conviction that wearing clothes is sometimes overrated. Jaan, who comes from the isolated forests of Setumaa in Estonia, is a natural slacklining talent. He became one the world’s top athletes in just five years – eventually surpassing Andy, the “Godfather of Slacklining”, who had dominated the competition scene before deciding to celebrate “slacklife” instead. A portrait of two contrasting characters and their lifestyles which proves you’ll never find your balance by standing still.
