We hope you take an hour this week to enjoy the latest offering from Snag Films’ USO Theater! Farther Than the Eye Can See is one of the top adventure films of all time – blind climber Eric Weihenmayer’s renowned summit of Mt. Everest
<!– surphace start –>An intimate look inside one of the most successful Mount Everest expeditions ever. This award-winning film beautifully captures the emotion, humor and drama of blind climber Erik Weihenmayer’s historic ascent as well as four other remarkable ‘firsts’ on Mount Everest.
“Though there were questions about the wisdom of the attempt before the team even left home, the clear and definitive success of the expedition proves what people working together, with a common vision, can accomplish. By rallying behind Erik, nineteen of twenty-one team members stood on the top. The oldest climber ever reached the summit along with his son, an American first. And finally, with the help of Sherpas, we were able to bring an HD camera along to capture historic moments with Erik and his team on the summit.” - Michael Brown, Director
