About this project
Help The Grand Rescue With its Final Finishing! After a four-year journey by producers Jenny Wilson and Meredith Lavitt and many others, The Grand Rescue premiered in Salt Lake City on November 5th! Funds raised through Kickstarter will be applied to the final finishing of the project.
The Grand Rescue is a story of a rescue that became legend. In 1967, on the North Face of the Grand Teton, seven rescuers risked their lives to save a severely injured climber and his companion. The rescue took three harrowing days and pushed the team to new abilities. Remarkably, the injured climber was critical of those who risked their lives to save his.
Two climbers became stranded high on a ledge after rock fall caused a serious injury. The rescue team came to their aide relying on innate skill and trust in one another to accomplish the daring rescue.
The rescuers and survivors relive the trial with honesty and unabashed candor. The rescue captured the attention of the Nation and left a lasting impression on all involved.
The Grand Rescue exposes the tenuous relationship between man and the mountain, and recounts an unprecedented rescue in American mountaineering.
The Grand Rescue is 50 minutes and its producers are in conversations with broadcast distributors.
