Free! | Friday @ 6-7:30pm | Oct 9th | Live discussion with the film maker, Nate Menninger

Carrying 220 pounds on your back with a head wrap in freezing conditions. Collapsing onto cement for a few hours of sleep after white rice for dinner. And fighting off bouts of illness in high altitude as you carry your clients’ gear. Now could you imagine doing all of that after graduation?

UCSB Adventure Programs Presents Presents The Porter With 17 Universities:

The first-hand account of a privileged, post-grad’s attempt to become one of the first-ever foreign-born Porters to aid a Mt. Everest expedition, and the harrowing reality he stepped into instead.

Watch the hour-long film online for free, and then join us in a discussion with Nate Menninger about the film, his experience and what he hopes to pass on to others.
