Arts & Culture Series: Meru Movie Night
July 24, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Having won an Oscar and a BAFTA already this year, adventurer and filmmaker Jimmy Chin has a lot to be excited about these days, and we want to celebrate him. In anticipation of our sold-out Hero Speaker event with Jimmy, we are screening his documentary, Meru, at the Studio/E Clubhouse.
Directed by Jimmy and his wife, Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, Meru chronicles Jimmy’s and two other professional climbers’ attempts at climbing a 4,000-foot wall on Meru Peak in the Indian Himalayas. The film is an artful look at the strength, resilience, and endurance it takes to not only adventure in — but to capture — the extreme.
Join the Studio/E community for drinks, appetizers, and movie treats as we experience this incredible documentary together.
