An American Ascent is a documentary (approx. 60 min.) about the first African-American expedition to tackle Denali while shedding light on the complex relationship many African-Americans have with the outdoors. The film documents the journey of nine African American climbers up the mountain and chronicles the many challenges of climbing the world’s most iconic peaks. The goal of the film is to inspire kids in cities, particularly kids of color, to consider the outdoors. The film is produced by George Potter and written and directed by Andy Adkins. The National Outdoor Leadership School formed the team, “Expedition Denali.”  Source: An American Ascent website (http://www.anamericanascent.com).
