10 mins, Director Faith E. Briggs, USA.

Vasu Sojitra is not seeking to inspire you to feel good and his trauma doesn’t exist solely to benefit the education of others. He is seeking to inspire you to move mountains and take action. Skiing is the method but the real mountains are the “isms” that fail to support disabled communities, communities of colour and so many others for whom access has not been a right. Through his personal journey, the attempt of a new objective, the famed line “The Skillet” on Mt. Moran and through over 40,000 “dips to Nirvana”, we hear his truth and begin to comprehend what it might look like to be in solidarity.
