The Harrisonburg Appalachian Trail Community brings a film screening and a presentation by an Appalachian Trail hiker to Court Square Theater.
“The Long Start to the Journey” follows filmmaker Chris Gallaway on his attempt to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail.
“Frost” (as he comes to be known on the trail) encounters severe weather, injury, loneliness, and fascinating characters he meets along the way. He walks over 2,000 miles in seven months, experiencing major life changes from becoming engaged to a close family tragedy. In the course of his hike discovers the origin story of the Appalachian Trail and how the early values and battles of the trail movement shaped what the AT has become today.
The Long Start to the Journey is a beautiful odyssey through the mountains of eastern America, a story of growth through perseverance. It reveals why wilderness is something essential for people in the modern world.
