ABOUT THE FILM: In October of 2008, six American trekkers traveled to Nepal with the goal of reaching Everest Base Camp. After being miraculously bumped from a deadly plane crash in the Himalayas, the team began the 18,000 foot ascension, but not everyone would make it.
This high adventure documentary, filmed in some of the highest places on earth, tells the story of how their view of the world was challenged by what they experienced.
ABOUT THE EVENT: Matthew 28:19 says “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…” For the citizens of metro-Nashville, the nations have come to our doorstep.
Nashville has recently received approximately 200 Nepali immigrants with the potential of many more on their way.These new Tennessee citizens have experienced, to no surprise, a culture shock and are faced with complexities and uncertainties regarding food, sustainable shelter, employment, education, transportation, communication, health, as well as social and spiritual needs.
Tickets for the premiere are $50.00 and the proceeds will go to the 28:19 Fund, benefiting Nepali Refugees.
