About this event

We invite you to join the Nelson Institute for a screening and discussion of the film Breaking Trail, which follows Emily Ford as she becomes the first woman and person of color to embark on a thru-hike, or point to point, of the Ice Age Trail in winter. This Tales from Planet Earth Film Series event will feature a special discussion with Ford and Nelson Institute community partnership liaison, James Edward Mills. Together they will explore Ford’s journey with her sled dog Diggins and the ways this experience tested their endurance, while also showcasing the unexpected kindness of strangers.

When: Monday, February 7 from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Where: UW Madison South Partnership Space

We are excited to host two opportunities to view the film . The second screening will take place on Tuesday, February 8 at the Marquee Theater, Union South. Purchase tickets for this screening here.
