Zak Mills has been backcountry snowboarding for about 10 years in the Eastern Sierra, Pacific Northwest, Canada, and Alaska, among other places. Snowboarding has changed the way he looks at the world and he is grateful for the impact that it’s had on his life. One of his favorite trips was a journey to the Karakoram in 2018 with a group of Frenchmen to ride a mountain called the Biacherai North Tower. He found a photograph of the mountain in an online trip report from some guys that had been on a guided ski trekking trip in the area several years before and Zak was deeply inspired by the aesthetics of the mountain.
Join us for the screening of Zabardast, an expedition about this journey into the Karakoram Range. The film is directed by Jérôme Tanon, and stars Thomas Delfino, Léo Taillefer, Zak Mills, Yannick Graziani, and Hélias Millerioux.
Doors open at 5:30, presentation starts at 6. Tickets are $15/ Free for those under 18
