Video: Spending a Month with Czech Freeskier Daniel Hanka

In January 2019, Daniel Hanka was coming off nearly a year of knee-hab following his second ACL surgery. Hanka had a healthy body and idea for a new video series, but no one to film him. After putting out a call for cinematographers on Instagram, he got a message from Erwan Lier, a French engineer with a love for skiing.
