ABout the film - mountain of storms
The 50th anniversary of an underground classic.
They called themselves Fun Hogs. In 1968, five friends took a road trip to climb Cerro Fitz Roy, and documented the whole thing on a 16mm Bolex. Along the way they surfed undiscovered breaks, skied on sand and snow, spent 31 days in a snow cave and made a first ascent on the mountain. Fifty years later this film, which defined a lifestyle and became an underground classic, is in its first wide release.

Alpine club of canada fundraiser
As part of the film screning, we will be doing a fundraiser for the Alpine Club of Canada (ACC). Since 1906, the Alpine Club of Canada (ACC) has been Canada’s national mountain organization. They have a lot of goals in common with MEC, and want to inspire and enable Canadians to climb, go mountaineering, and get into the alpine. The ACC has an extensive system of alpine and backcountry huts, along with regional club sections across the country to create a vibrant, active outdoor community. As an official benefactor, MEC provides the ACC with annual funding for core operations and youth programming.
