Join us with the movie’s creator for a screening of the new documentary, "The Climb to Katahdin." Devoted couple from Louisiana, Lindsay and Coltin, and their Catahoula dog Chaser, hit America's oldest footpath, the Appalachian Trail, for a six month adventure in the mountains.
The A.T., as it's called, stretches from Georgia to Maine and spans over 2,100 miles. It is many adventurers' dream to complete the trek in one large journey. But there's much more to the A.T. than the couple expected. The community, the trials and tribulations, the pain, and the rain are all things that are brought to light and experienced first hand.
Featuring a unique dogs-eye-view and an incredibly intimate closeness to the couple and the Trail unlike any adventure film, watch as they traverse their way to Maine and fully submerge themselves into the Trail culture.
