Summary, etc.:
ASPEN is a film about a town famous in the 19th century for silver mining and now known for its scenic splendor, mountains, skiing, hiking, music, intellectual activity and fashionable people. The film documents the daily life and activities of the people who live, work, visit and play in Aspen in the winter.. "Wisemańs view of Aspen and the Aspenites is clearly that the place and its people are a study in contrasts, some of them touching and some of them absurd́Œ And even when the people on the screen are behaving in ways that seem foolish or frivolous, the intoxicating seductiveness of the place comes through. ́ASPEŃ is glorious, town and film." ́ Tom Shales, The Washington Post
