The Story of Black Mountain is a 45-minute documentary about the journey of Black Mountain Golf Club in Hua Hin, Thailand.
”There are few times in life when a great story present it self and is just waiting to be told” says filmmaker Mattias Brannholm: ”The story of Stig Notlov and how the award winning golf course Black Mountain was created was one of those rare occasions”.
Stig Notlov grew up in the remote north of Sweden, some 100 miles north of the Arctic circle. In his first professional career, Stig founded and ran a highly successful hardware story in Scandinavia. In his second professional career, he created a master class golf course and a community around it in the foothills west of Hua Hin, Thailand.
“This is a film for golfers and people interested in a great story” says producer and director Mattias Brannholm. “I enjoy golf and was mesmerized when I was told how Black Mountain came about. From Stigs endeavor as an entrepreneur in Sweden, how he barely escaped the tsunami and was forced to evacuated and how he in less than ten years fulfilled a long time dream of building a golf course and winning numerous awards as one of the best golf course in all of Asia”.
The story of Black Mountain is produced and directed by filmmaker Mattias Brannholm. Director of photography is Niklas Forshell. Award winning editor Anders Bewarp headed the post production-team.
