The Weight of Water – and Films
Erik Weihenmayer has climbed the tallest peaks on each continent and his latest undertaking is to kayak the Grand Canyon. His blindness doesn’t hold him back – and together with his friend Lonnie, who also happens to be blind, the two face Lava Falls, the toughest rapid in the canyon.
Following the World Premiere of The Weight of Water, Erik Weihenmayer and filmmaker Michael Brown join us on stage in person.
Followed by films in competition.
