The Event Program

  • Movie presentation of High Ground

    Eleven veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan join an expedition to climb the 20,000 foot Himalayan giant Mount Lobuche. With blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer and a team of Everest summiters as their guides, they set out on an emotional and gripping climb to reach the top in an attempt to heal the emotional and physical wounds of the longest war in U.S. history. Representing nearly every branch of the military, the veterans, and the Gold Star Mom who joins their trek, bring humor and deep emotion to this hero’s journey all captured with breathtaking, vertigo-inducing cinematography by three-time Emmy winner, director Michael Brown and produced by Don Hahn (The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast). HIGH GROUND has won three awards since its premiere at the Boulder International Film Festival, and recently screened at the Seattle International Film Festival.

Event Info

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have claimed thousands of lives. On Veteran's Day 2012 eleven wounded American soldiers are taking their lives back in a new film from Michael Brown called High Ground. On an expedition to climb the 20,000 foot Himalayan peak Mount Lobuche with blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer and a team of Everest summiters as their guides, these fallen heroes set out on a compelling and emotional journey in an attempt to heal the physical and psychological wounds of the longest war in US history.
