We are very excited about the first event of 2012 at the Rebekah Music Hall. Our friend Dianne Whelan is touring her award-winning documentary 40 Days at Base Camp : a documentary filmed on Mount Everest across the country and will be presenting it in Bear River, Friday February 3rd at 7 pm. Admission $12.
– Erin Schopfer & Jonathan Welch
“This documentary puts a knife through the heart of the Everest myth with stories of climbers interwoven with daily life at base camp, the history of the mountain and the devastating effect climate change has had on the mountains’ ecology.”
40 Days at Base Camp was the opening film at Banff Mountain Film Festival this year and won 10th place at the Vancouver International Film Festival this fall.
