Red Barn Event: Guilt Trip, a climate change film with a skiing problem

Get excited for winter with a showing of two ski and adventure films!

GUILT TRIP - a climate change film with a skiing problem
The only thing greater than this group of skiers' desire to claim a first ski descent on Greenland's second highest peak is the size of their carbon footprint to get there. Loaded with guilt, they decide to bring along renowned glaciologist, Alun Hubbard, who’s hypothesis, if proven, could rewrite popular projections of global sea-level rise. However, the entire expedition is put in question when they arrive in Greenland and discover their objective is beyond the range of all available aircraft.

ELECTRIC GREG - A carbon neutral quest to become a better adventurer
Record-breaking mountain endurance athlete, Greg Hill, has never shied away from a goal. Through his time spent in the mountains he's seen the effects of climate change first-hand and came to realize the way he was approaching the mountains was only making the problem worse. Two years ago he changed his approach and set out to climb 100 peaks without burning any fossil fuels. But the question is: will it make a difference?

Please note, films contain a few instances of adult language.

Doors open at 6:30pm for community social and no-host bar; films begin at 7:00pm. Free to attend. Donations are welcome.
