"Mile... Mile & A Half" the film

"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.  Link to information about the event http://www.stargazerstheatre.com/mile-mile-a-half/ 

"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. 

"a 'must-see' film" 

-American Hiking Society 

"A breathtaking journey from beginning to end with loads of laughs in between." 

-Audience Member 

"This film will make you long for the mountains even if you've never stood on one." 

-Robin Black, Photographer 

"Who knew a movie about backpacking could be so entertaining?" 

-Steve Tischler, Senior Blogger for REI 

We would be honored if you would share this event with your hiking group, as I'm certain the film will entertain them. 

Here is some more information on the film should you need it:http://www.themuirproject.com/press and https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Muir-Project/240615075966884 

If you have any additional questions, are interested in promoting the film on a larger level or would just like to talk more about the project and the screening, feel free to contact me. 

All the best, 

Kia M. Kiso

      Sorry, John. I met a few at dinner & a few in line, but hard to meet once inside as it was mixed crowd. Glad you enjoyed the movie & band. I did as well!!

      No worries Renee. I think I might have met one other Adventurer and not realized it. But did anyone get inspired for a long hike? I have wanted to hike a section of the Continental Divide Trail near Buena Vista. It vaires from 20 to 25 miles and there is camping between some of the sections. I would be willing to hike straight through and camp at the beginning and end. I will post it as a suggestion and see if there is any interest for next Spring as the campgrounds close soon.

    Hope it's okay & that Meetup groups have to be exclusive- I also belong to Outdoor Club of Colorado Springs & there are four from that group planning to attend the film presentation. I told them about our plans to meet for dinner and to let me know if any are interested in joining us.

    Uwe's is wonderful, but small. Not sure if they take reservations, but may be needed for 17 folks!! Haven't been to La Caretta, but I'm up for either place.
