BENOFF: Arctic Ascent

July 13 @ 4:00 pm

Free

Tickets FREE TICKETED EVENT – SPONSORED BY NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC
This special event will include a screening of a feature-length festival cut of the new National Geographic series Arctic Ascent. In Arctic Ascent, Alex Honnold (SOLO) embarks on an epic quest of unclimbed walls in one of the most remote corners of Greenland, a country on the frontline of the climate crisis.

Honnold has always dreamed of exploring Greenland and its unclimbed peaks. Now he and world-class climbers Hazel Findlay and Mikey Schaefer attempt to summit Ingmikortilaq, an unclimbed seacliff that rises out of the frozen wilderness and is nearly 1,000 feet higher than Free Solo’s El Capitan. For Honnold, a long-time climate activist, this expedition is about more than just climbing, it is an opportunity to witness firsthand the impact of climate change on a wilderness that is vitally important to the future of the planet.

Directed by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin
