Most days of the year Anton Krupicka runs up a mountain. Most weeks, he bags multiple peaks and gains over 45,000 feet of vertical in the pristine Colorado wilderness. Joel Wolpert's IN THE HIGH COUNTRY captures what compels Krupicka to live his life this way, and how he uses mountain running to connect deeply with time and place. When he is not running alone in the mountains, Krupicka competes internationally at the highest levels of trail ultra-running. In The High Country is his story. Runtime is 34 minutes.
Immediately following the film, Krupicka will give a slideshow talk describing several of his mountain adventures in sharp detail with photographs of the journeys to help illustrate many of the themes that guide him. He and Director Wolpert will then discuss collaborating to make this film and take audience questions. The screening discussion will be followed by an after party reception* at Symphony Space with craft beers, wine and food by local chefs. There will also be excellent giveaways and raffle items for party guests. Check out the event on Facebook click here.
Krupicka has travelled the world, but this is his first visit to NYC and only area appearance.
*A limited number of ticket are available for after show party.
