Second to none: Xaver Walser’s new movie

The two Brits Chris Hyde and Richard Le Poer Beresford and the Argentine Piki Diaz Alberdi belong to the cream of the crop: as polo professionals, they play at the world’s most prestigious tournaments. As ever, they excelled on the field in 2015 at the world’s only “high-goal” tournament on snow, held in St. Moritz.

In “SECOND TO NONE”, they talk candidly about their attitude to the sport, their life as polo professionals and their unwillingness to accept defeat. Close-ups of the faces of the winners and the losers alternate with riveting scenes of the game and duels rendered in super-slow-motion.

“Amazing visuals,” raves tournament winner Chris Hyde. “SECOND TO NONE looks and sounds so cool!” “This is beautifully shot and extremely thoughtful,” agrees Gareth A Davies from The Daily Telegraph in London. “Xaver Walser shows the unique movement of player and pony, and why polo is both glamourous and tough.”

Xaver Walser (40) spent his childhood in Cape Town; today, he lives in Zürich and St. Moritz. The passionate story-teller—as he describes himself—films documentaries and advertising productions for clients all over the world. His passion for polo was kindled in 2011 when he was filming at the St. Moritz Snow Polo World Cup for the first time.
