Join San Francisco Green Film Festival for our March Mixer & Film Screening of Valley Uprising.

If you were amazed by Yosemite Valley climbers, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson's, quest to be the first to free climb Dawn Wall, you'll be stunned by the history and counterculture that went before them in this special presentation of the highly-anticipated, feature-length film Valley Uprising.

Valley Uprising is the riveting, unforgettable tale of this bold tradition: half a century of struggle against the laws of gravity — and the laws of the land. For fifty years explorers and mad(wo)men have left materialism behind and ventured onto the high, lonesome granite. The torch has been passed down across three generations of climbers; through rivalries, tragedies and triumphs, the art of Yosemite climbing has advanced beyond anyone’s imagination.

Sponsored by: Rainbow Grocery Cooperative, Sierra Nevada and Trinity Oaks Winery.

Film Synopsis

The greatest untold story of American counterculture is that of the Yosemite Valley rock climbers. For the past fifty years, Yosemite’s massive cliffs have drawn explorers and madmen to leave materialism behind and venture onto the high, lonesome granite.
The larger-than-life characters of Yosemite carved out an "extreme bohemian" lifestyle in the Valley, living on red wine and boiled potatoes, clashing with National Park authorities, and pioneering the boldest climbs on Earth.

The torch has been passed down across three generations of climbers; through rivalries, tragedies and triumphs, the art of Yosemite climbing has advanced beyond anyone’s imagination.

Starring Yosemite legends Dean Potter, Alex Honnold, Lynn Hill, "Chongo" Chuck, John Bachar, Jim Bridwell, Warren Harding, Yvon Chouinard, Royal Robbins and more... Valley Uprising is the riveting, unforgettable tale of this bold tradition: half a century of struggle against the laws of gravity — and the laws of the land.
