“Yūgen” is a three-year borderless mountain-based documentary film that explores the connection mountaineers and environmentalists share with the natural world. It follows the journey of snowboard mountaineer Rafael Pease and crew as they travel throughout the corners of the world, trudging gear into unseen locations, the crew works tirelessly to capture the true essence of being one with the mountain.
This will be the film’s first premiere in California. Learn more about it at connectionsmovement.com/.
