Event Details

Please join us for the Denver area premiere of Michael Brown’s award winning documentary HIGH GROUND.   

 

This is a gala evening with a special introduction by author Jon Krakauer before the screening. Afterward there will be a special question and answer period moderated by John Meyer of the Denver Post featuring film maker Michael Brown and members of the 2010 World T.E.A.M Sports Soldiers to the Summit Lobuche climbing team including Erik Weihenmayer, Luis Benitez, Brad Bull and Chad Stone.

 

HIGH GROUND is an honest and gripping portrayal of veterans returning from the longest war in American history. Their poignant story unfolds in unexpected ways as the team makes their way high into the Himalayan Mountains, through the villages of Nepal, over raging rivers and up terrifying steep terrain risking everything for a chance at the summit.


HIGH GROUND allows veterans to tell their stories in their own way and in their own words, revealing the emotional and mental scars sustained by those who have survived the horrors of war. The mountain itself is a metaphor for one of the basic concepts to military action – the high ground is the safest, most defensible place with the greatest perspective.


The film chronicles a showcase expedition called “Soldiers to the Summit” bringing together injured war veterans with world recognized mountain climbers to demonstrate what could be achieved by climbing a Himalayan giant – an unexpected step towards healing.

 

We hope to see you at 7:30pm on November 2, 2012!
