The Fall Line has been selected to screen at the prestigious Banff Mountain Film Festival on November 6 and 7. I am beyond honored to share Heath Calhoun’s story during my time at Banff – the top of the outdoor film festivals – and this screening will be the Canadian premiere. The film will be screening at 10:40 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 6 and Sunday, Nov. 7 at the Eric Harvie Theatre and Margaret Greenham Theatre at the Banff Centre (see the complete schedule here). I hope to see you there!
The film is a moving documentary on 101st Airborne Ranger Heath Calhoun’s tortuous recovery after losing his legs in a grenade blast in Iraq. Calhoun discovers an innate talent for ski racing on the ski slopes of Aspen, Colorado and earns a coveted chance to represent his country again — as an athlete on the 2010 Paralympic ski team. Using a sit-ski in international competitions, he is now a spokesperson for the Wounded Warrior Project.
I am very grateful for all of the people I worked with on The Fall Line and want to especially applaud the efforts of organizations and events like the Paralympics working to get people with disabilities back on their feet, and in Heath’s case, on a sit-ski. Please visit www.paralympic.org to see these amazing sports events happening all over the world.
