Climbing Bridges: A Brooklyn Boulders Film Premiere
Mar 5, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm| $10
Come to the world premiere of Brooklyn Boulders first film:
Climbing Bridges – The Story of Omercan.
Eight years ago, Turkey native & original Brooklyn Boulders volunteer (now Facilities Manager) Omer came to Brooklyn following his passion for music.
In doing so he left behind his entire family, his friends, and his homeland. Since then, he’s been working on his passion of music and been a part of the climbing community at BKB.
When Petzl announced that their 2014 Roctrip tour would be going through Turkey, we packed our bags, readied our cameras and got ready to join some of the world’s best climbers half-way across the globe, with Omer as our cultural guide.
What happened next is essentially a love story: the feeling of coming home after a long journey, the bond of brotherhood, the rhythm of music, and the adventure of climbing.
Like music, the love for climbing needs no translation and breaks all barriers.
Come watch the premiere with us at BKB Thursday, March 5th at 7pm, featuring Turkish food, a live performance by Omer, popcorn and more.
$10 tickets – half of proceeds go to our Brooklyn Boulders Foundation.
(Film Time: 32 Minutes)
