We’re honored and thrilled that ASCENDING AFGHANISTAN has received special jury mention at the BANFF Mountain Film Festival.
“A film that reminds us how trivial our aspirations and achievements are. A film that humbles us. The jury unanimously agreed that this powerful film could not go unrecognized… it is a reminder of how far we still have to go in the journey to make this a just and equal planet for all, and it casts a new light on the unexpected role mountain sports can play in those efforts.”
— Bruce Kirkby, jury member.
