PEEC News:

Need a dose of inspiration and stunning views of the Himalayas? Meru, an inspiring film showing vibrant images 21,000 feet above the Ganges River, is coming to town at 7. p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15 thanks to the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) and the Reel Deal Theater.

The story of Meru follows three climbers on their second attempt to ascend the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru, one of the most challenging big-walls in the Himalayas. Proceeds from this special feature film support local businesses, PEEC and the Reel Deal Theater.

The climbers, Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk, share their passion, friendship, hope, obsession and sacrifices on the big screen Thursday. Shut down by their first attempt, they regroup and commit to undertake the Shark’s Fin once more, this time under even more extraordinary circumstances.

Tickets to see Meru are $10 in advance or $12 at the door and can be purchased by calling the Reel Deal 505.662.1580) or stopping by the theater. The Reel Deal Theater is at 2551 Central Ave. in Los Alamos.
