For Immediate Release:
From the top of the world to the end of the line, the extraordinary life and climbs of legendary alpinist Jeff Lowe - narrated by New York Times best selling author Jon Krakauer.
Multiple award-winning documentary film, Jeff Lowe's Metanoia, is the story of a legendary athlete's rise to the top of his sport and his devastating fall from grace that precipitated perhaps the boldest solo mountain climb in history; twenty years later, Jeff embraces a debilitating disease with the same vision, courage and grace that he brought to his climbing.
Jeff helped make climbing what it is today - through technical innovation and inspired teaching and special events. Jeff made more than a thousand visionary first ascents, including the never repeated "Metanoia" on the North Face of the Eiger, where he experienced a spiritual transformation that continues to this day. Jeff's story inspires us all, as he brings the creativity and strength that characterized his brilliant climbing career to the challenges that he faces today: life in a wheelchair and his own mortality. Jeff does the best he can with what he’s got from where he is right now. This film is a must see for anyone who has ever faced a challenge.
The Newport Beach Film Festival presents the film including a Question and Answer session following the film with the producer of the film and Jeff Lowe’s partner, Connie Self and executive director Luke G. Jones.
