21+ Please

After an amazing festival in April, we wanted to give our Wasatch Family an opportunity to see some of the highlights from the 2019 Wasatch Mountain Film Festival.

If you missed this years festival or maybe didn’t get enough of the films, this screening is made specially for you. Join us in August for an event where we rewind the tapes and start fresh with an evening of amazing films just for you.

The Passage
Directed by Nate Dappen
In 1974, my 20-year-old parents and uncle Andy built their own canoes, launched them into the Pacific, and became some the first people in modern history to canoe from Washington to Alaska up the Inside Passage. That adventure became legend in our family—shaping who we’ve become, how we view our parents, and how our parents view themselves. In the summer of 2017, we renovated those canoes and with our aging parents completed their 1974 journey. The Passage is a story about the dreams of aging brothers, fathers and sons, and the wild places that define us.

Beautiful Idiot
Directed by Harrison Mendel & Robb Thompson
Featuring professional slopestyle rider Brett Rheeder, “Beautiful Idiot” takes you on a wild ride through the mindset and motivations of those who feel driven to pursue greatness, how it can feel to fall short, and the consequences of reaching a lofty goal when the struggle to get there has defined you for so long.

Queen of Maud Land
Directed by Taylor Keating & Cedar Wright
A dream team of six elite climbers mount an expedition to one of the world’s last great climbing frontiers: the remote frozen towers of Antarctica. Jimmy Chin and Conrad Anker tackle a new route on the 3,600-foot Ulvetanna; Savannah Cummins and Anna Pfaff summit the towering Holtanna; and Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright make a harrowing and hilarious blitz of 13 different spires spread across the ice field, including one pitch that Honnold calls “the scariest I have ever led.” “Queen Maud Land,” named for this icy region, showcases a stunning, rarely visited wilderness, and the suffering and vision needed to climb at the bottom of the world.
