Event description

Description

D.C. Premiere

In 1965 Jim Whittaker (the first American to reach the summit of Mount Everest) led Senator Robert Kennedy on the first ascent of a remote mountain in the Yukon named after the senator’s late brother, President John F. Kennedy. Fifty years later, the sons of the original climbing team -- a raucous band manager, a candidate for governor, and a young mountaineer -- embark on an expedition to the mountain to celebrate the special bond that connects them all. Featuring unreleased instrumentals by Eddie Vedder and never-before-seen footage and photos of Robert Kennedy, the feature-length documentary sits at the intersection of politics, human rights, environmentalism, and adventure.


Directed by Eric Becker
