An Appalachian Trail thru-hike takes ambitious hikers on a 2,178.3-mile adventure from Georgia to Maine, trekking through some of America's most pristine state and national parks. The Traveling Circus, led by 24-year-old lawyer Katherine Imp, attempted the Appalachian Trail thru-hike from March to August 2010. Kate was joined by her brother Brandon, a 21-year-old Ivy grad fresh out of college, and her best friend Emily, a 23-year-old "city chick" born and raised on Chicago's South Side. By capturing the highs and lows of trail life, this honest, touching, and very personal story paints a raw and uncensored picture of how long-distance hiking can affect the mind, body, and soul.
Topher Wright (music) will kick off the event with live music and he and Katherine Imp (Director, Executive Producer, Cast) will be present for an after-screening Q&A! This film is not suitable for children under 13 due to profanity.
