Rockies Film Festival & Series Presents: The Eight Mountains
|September 21, 2023||Key City Theatre|
Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary kicks off the 2023-24 edition of the Rockies Film Festival and Series with the feature film The Eight Mountains.
The Eight Mountains is an epic journey of friendship and self-discovery set in the breathtaking Italian Alps, The Eight Mountains is a landmark cinematic experience. Through observant detail and stunning landscape photography the film explores the profound, complex relationship between two friends who first meet as children when in an isolated village at the base of the Alpine slopes. The death of one of the friends' father reunites the two in realizing a dream of constructing a cabin on the Alps, and the project and subsequent explorations of the awe-inspiring mountain range bond the two in a shared purpose. Yet despite their connection, the purity of nature and the demands of society both threaten to drive the men to pursue different, possibly irrevocably divergent paths on the vertiginous terrain of life. Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.
Tickets are $15 and available through the Key City Theatre website. This show is sponsored by Apex Accounting
