Encore! Encore! An American Ascent

Our 2016 Encore Series continues July 20, with a free screening of An American Ascent at San Francisco Public Library.

Ever been told that something is not for you? The Expedition Denali team didn't let that stand in their way. In An American Ascent we get up close and personal as nine African American's become the first team to take on Mount Denali.

You'll also get the chance to hear from one of the most passionate & dedicated people we've ever met - Expedition Denali climber Scott Briscoe, who will be joining us for the screening.

We saw a glimpse of Scott's enthusiasm at the San Francisco Premiere of An American Ascent at Green Film Fest 2016. 

About two-thirds through the film, climbers literally on the edge of the mountain, the theater and the whole block suffers a massive power outage.

Before we knew what had happened, Scott was on his feet introducing himself to the audience, sharing his experience of Expedition Denali and explaining why he's a staunch advocate for increasing the diversity of youth in adventure sports.

We're thrilled to be able to give people a second chance to see this film and hear Scott's story.
