MAX – Life as a Gold Medal
At the end of December 2018, after years at the top of the international snowboard circuit, Max’s world came to a halt: he was diagnosed with cancer.
Throughout the movie, we follow him and his “entourage” facing the harrowing journey of cancer. Shortly after conquering cancer, Max quickly returns to training where he sees snow for the first time, in Saas-Fee, Switzerland, only a couple of days before the X Games and 2 months after his last chemo treatment. Then finally, as he had planned, he returned to competition on August 31, where he took the first spot on the podium after a strenuous and challenging semi-final.
