‘The Dawn Wall’ documents rock climbers’ quest of the impossible

Saturday, Dec. 15, 3 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—The ninth annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series at the Billings Farm & Museum will feature the documentary “The Dawn Wall” on Saturday, Dec. 15, at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. in HD projection and surround sound, with complimentary refreshments. Reservations are strongly recommended.

In January 2015, American rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson captivated the world with their quest to climb the Dawn Wall, a seemingly impossible 3,000 foot rock face in Yosemite National Park. The pair lived on the sheer vertical cliff for weeks, igniting a frenzy of global media attention. Josh Lowell and Peter Mortimer filmed this spine-tingling real-life adventure to create this riveting award-winning documentary. The film was a winner of the Audience Award at the South by Southwest Film Festival.

Tickets prices are $11 for adults and $6 for children under 16. BF&M members receive discounted prices. For a complete list of screenings and to purchase tickets, visit  billingsfarm.org/filmfest or call 802-457-5303.

Billings Farm & Museum is located one-half mile north of the Woodstock village green on Vermont Route 12.
