High Ground, a Don Hahn production of a Michael Brown film, tells the story of 11 wounded veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan to join an expedition to climb the 20,000 foot Himalayan giant Mount Lobuche. The film chronicles a captivating effort to reach the summit while addressing the emotional and physical wounds tied to the longest modern ground war in U.S. history. This is 11 wounded warriors climbing home from war.
High Ground is coming to the New York State Museum on Sunday, November 18. The film will be shown at 1PM, and will be followed by a Q&A session featuring several wounded warriors with significant backgrounds. This is a chance to better understand the mental and physical costs of war – a burden shouldered by an increasingly smaller segment of the American public. Hope to see you there.
