"We are so used to hearing that you have to work hard that you can’t just dream all the time. You know, that old way of thinking. And it’s not true anymore because we just keep proving it wrong by succeeding in what we believe in."
Ishtar X Tussilago is a short film by Maceo Frost starring downhill longboard rider Ishtar Backlund in the epic mountains of Norway. Combined with a magical soundtrack from Swedish rock band Tussilago, the film is a glimpse into the profound feeling of believing in yourself and living one’s greatest dreams.
