Series: Portland EcoFilm Festival
Wednesday, May 13 at 7:00pm | $10 |
In partnership with Mercy Corps, Mazamas, Mountain Shop, and the Nepali Association of Oregon, the Portland EcoFilm Festival is proud to present a fundraiser for earthquake relief in Nepal: a screening of Sherpa Cinemas' INTO THE MIND.
With stunning cinematography and groundbreaking storytelling techniques, INTO THE MIND travels from Alaska to Bolivia to the Himalayas and beyond, painting a philosophical portrait of humankind in the form of an outdoor adventure film. What drives us to overcome challenge? How do we justify risk? What forces are at the core of a mountain addiction? The film weaves together unique athlete segments over a multitude of mount sport genres to depict the connectivity of Earth and open a window onto never-before-seen moments and landscapes. Explore how we begin our perception of self, construct the foundations of confidence, and are ultimately led up the path of self-actualization. As Buddha once said, “The mind is everything. What you think you become.” INTO THE MIND is about becoming.
100% of the proceeds from this film screening go to Mercy Corps' Nepal Earthquake Response Fund.
Join us for a pre-film happy hour at 5:00pm at Mountain Shop (1510 NE 37th Avenue). Parking available for the happy hour and through the film. Details at the Mountain Shop website.
