Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Films, Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration
Fee required. Tickets required.

This Hop annual favorite returns with another selection of culturally rich, adventure-packed and incredibly inspiring documentary films curated from the Mountainfilm festival in Telluride, Colorado. As usual, breathtaking sequences of mountain biking, climbing and extreme skiing are interspersed with poignant stories of singular people doing remarkable things. We’ll meet an Everest-obsessed avalanche survivor, a civil rights hero and lynching survivor, a Montana grizzly lover, a climbing gym turned safe haven in inner-city Memphis, an intrepid kayaker who regularly circumvents Manhattan Island and a cancer veteran/avid skier who is grateful for the unexpected gift of “being broken.”

Founded in 1979, Mountainfilm is one of America’s longest-running film festivals and is best described by one word: inspiring. A dynamic weekend of films, people, art, stories and ideas that celebrate indomitable spirit, Mountainfilm educates and inspires audiences and motivates individuals and communities to advance solutions for a livable world.
