OLD MAN LIGHTNING – THE BIG TEASER

Cranky, yet witty bouldering legend John “Verm” Sherman has lost his mojo and is jonesing to regain it. What better way than to climb the world’s most famous boulder problem, Yosemite’s iconic Midnight Lightning? He climbed it 25 years ago, but since then the climb has gotten harder and Verm’s gotten softer due to beerlust and a third-degree burning passion for bird photography. Standing in his way is his age (57), weight (200 lbs), dozens of injuries, and myriad health issues. Nevertheless, he’s stubborn and determined. Verm needs to save condors from extinction, and if leveraging his climbing celebrity will help, he’ll stop at nothing. Verm enlists the assistance of Ryan “Meatball” Whited, a cheerfully sadistic personal trainer and musculoskeletal guru. A 6-month mission to whip Verm back into shape ensues, leading to a final confrontation with bouldering’s “Problem of Problems”.

PUSHING BACK

This film inspires all who have had an accident and know how difficult it is to come back. Alyse Dietel fell off a cliff and shattered her body. The doctors told her she would probably never walk again, this included her passion, rock climbing. Her broken body was a vessel of constant pain but with a strong mind and her art to keep company, she pushed back the wheel chair and now is climbing harder than ever. Alyse is now an inspiration and a force to be recon with. She just was on the cover of Rock and Ice Magazine, achieved pro sponsorships and climbs 5.13 trad. A true inspiration.

SALVATION MOUNTAIN

Leonard Knight is sharing his vision of LOVE and Creativity still after he left his body in 2014. He made a very inspiriting message and a mountain of color that is not to be missed.

Also, check out photographer, Aaron Huey, and his inspiring book ” Where The Heaven Flowers Grow” about Leonard or go check it out in the middle of the desert, it is impressive. Enjoy and LOVE, dkish

WUPATKI TRAIL CREW – HARD AT WORK

National Park Foundation supports many projects that the federal budgets cannot with private funds. NPS has me documenting some of their 100+ approved grants. This project is in my back yard at Wupatki National Monument with their trail crew and the American Conservation Experience. They are rebuilding trails to improve the old trails but also add handicap access as well.

A GLIMPSE OF THE DINÉ

This film documents a little glimpse of the Dinè People (AKA Navajo) and their culture at the Western Navajo Fair in Tuba City, Arizona. It’s purpose is to connect the old and new traditions and tell their stories through their eyes. I would like to dedicate this film to my mentor and great friend John Running. If it weren’t for him I would have not known the beautiful ways of the Dinè. Thank you to all in front and behind the lens for making this beautiful work with me. Ahe’hee’
