Wisdom Earned, “A Mountain Climbers Perspective feature length documentary film, is based on mountain climber Chris Kopczynski’s amazing life. It tells the story of what he learned climbing to the tops of the world’s highest mountains on seven continents, including Antarctica and Mt Everest twice. Now there is just one more Mountain left to climb. At 63, Chris Kopczynski had a goal and purpose explained in the film to climb one last major mountain, the little known Mt. Fairweather in Alaska. This is world’s highest coastal mountain from sea level to the summit and remains mysterious, treacherous part of Alaska that most people have never heard of. The sensitive story regarding the purpose for the climb and pilgrimage, is detailed in the film with the message all tied together in the end about the Earth, and lost salmon runs. Real life drama, adversity, avalanches, storms and hidden dangers stand in their way. It’s personal, emotional, sensitive, authentic and true. The audience learns some treasures of wisdom from a mountain climber’s perspective, intermixed with powerful observations, inspiring stories of human spirit, historical perspectives on the loss of the salmon on the Columbia a River, and world wide pollution. Filmed in Alaska, China and all over the world, the message has mass appeal to a broad audience.
