Event description

Description

An HBO Vice Impact production following Afghanistan's first female mountaineering team as they attempt their first ascent of a previously unclimbed peak in stunning Panjshir province, conquer the complex social boundaries of being a young woman in Kabul, and return home victoriously.

Watch the film and meet the Ascend team in person and by video link for a Q&A afterward. The event hosts are Danika Gilbert, the expedition leader who has guided the team since 2015, and Dr Kerstin May, who volunteers for Ascend regularly.

This event is a fundraiser for Ascend: Leadership Through Athletics, a 501(c)3. A generous donor is underwriting the cost of screening the film, so 100% of your ticket price will go to the program in Afghanistan.
