Film Chronicling Ski Mountaineer comes to DocuWest Festival

Denver born filmmaker, Stephen Grynberg, brings his newest film to DocuWest Documentary Film Festival. A Life Ascending is a powerful and moving feature-length documentary about world-class ski mountaineering guide Ruedi Beglinger.

Living with his wife and two young daughters on a remote glacier in the Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia, Beglinger has built a reputation as one of the top mountaineering guides in the world. The film follows his family’s unique life in the mountains and their journey in the years following a massive avalanche that killed seven people.

Grynberg will be in town to host a Q&A after each screening of the film. The film will be screening at the DocuWest Film Festival in Golden, Colorado on Thursday, June 24 and Saturday, June 26.
