About the event

Join us for screenings of Going Greenland, Downstream, and Imperfect Advocate. 

All three films dive deep into the intersection of outdoor recreation and environmental conservation. We all love playing in the mountains, but what are we willing to do to protect those spaces?

Professional skier Rachael Burks (Going Greenland) and skier and atmospheric scientist Thorn Merrill (Downstream) will join us to introduce their films and answer questions.

Tickers $10 ahead of time and $15 at the door.

Going Greenland:

What happens when you combine a renewable energy sailboat with an Arctic ski expedition in Greenland for the first time ever? Athletes Rachael Burks and Jessica Baker put the idea to test, and endure a both harrowing and inspiring journey along Greenland’s West coast fjords and towering mountains.

Going Greenland is a documentary film about our connection to wild spaces and the juxtaposition of having an impact on our environment. How do we follow our dreams and passions while still living in a way that is more in harmony with our environment? Find out how Rachael and Jessica work through some of these challenges while still managing to tick off big ski lines in the remote and wild landscapes and seascapes of Western Greenland and the Greenland Ice Sheet.

Downstream:

Great Salt Lake is at the lowest point in its recorded history. Without the lake, skiers and riders of the Wasatch have little hope of continuing to enjoy the mountains surrounding Salt Lake City. Professional skier and atmospheric scientist Thorn Merrill explains that enjoyment of the Greatest Snow on Earth and the health of the Great Salt Lake are inexorably linked.

Imperfect Advocate:

In the rarified air of the world’s wildest mountains, alpinist Graham Zimmerman has seen firsthand the effects of human-driven climate change on the world.

He has seen glaciers recede, winters become shorter, and weather patterns become more volatile. As his eyes have been opened to the irreversible damage that humans are doing to the planet, he has been forced to acknowledge that he is complicit in destroying these places that he loves​. 

Despite his own carbon footprint, Graham decides that he must take action and joins Protect Our Winters, an advocacy group that enlists him in the fight against climate change. In doing so, he starts down the path of advocacy in an increasingly turbulent world. A world that will challenge him in many ways, not least of all, by asking if he can accept​ his imperfections to become an effective advocate.
