"Mile... Mile & A Half" the film
- the much-anticipated hiking documentary is coming to Colo Spgs on Mon, Sept 16th at 6pm. Join us!
My name is Kia Kiso. I am a former Colorado Springs resident, a Palmer alumni and I am a producer of the hiking documentary, "MILE… MILE & A HALF". We are excited to be bringing the film to Colorado Springs on Mon, Sept 16th at 6pm for one night only and we would love to share it with you and your group. The screening will be held at Stargazers Theatre. There will be a Q&A with the filmmakers and a live concert by Opus Orange after the screening. The tickets are $12.

"Mile… Mile & A Half" is not your typical hiking and nature documentary. It is about the journey of a group of professional artists who hiked the John Muir Trail in 2011. They hiked 219 Miles in 25 days. Along the way, they were joined by musicians, painters, teachers and other adventure-seekers. They set out to capture the trail, but ended up documenting how the wilderness captured them. The film has been described as "inspiring and life evaluating", "breathtakingly gorgeous", "a fun journey" and much more. www.MMAAH.com
Here is a trailer for the film:
This June in Los Angeles at the 16th Annual Dances With Films festival we won the Audience Award for Best Documentary. Since then we have had full-house screenings in cities across the US.
I will be in attendance along with one of the other producers, Kia Kiso, a Colorado native and the band who created our soundtrack, Opus Orange.
Here are some of the responses we've received so far.
