New to the Breckenridge International Snow Sculpture Championships, team France is excited to get started on their snow sculpture The Dark Side of the Moon. This sculpture  is a  humouristic représentation of today’s society , but is also in homage to Georges Méliés ,the famous French film producer. He was a pioneer of spécial effects, who during the silent film era at the dawn of the twentieth century, his movie “trip to the moon ” showed a very humane  moon, with a happy and luminous side but at the same time somehow dark  and worrying as you move to the other side of the sculpture.  No doubt this sculpture will be one that transforms right in front of you!
