 A Himalayan Journey World Premiere


A Himalayan Journey World Premiere

Directed by Andy Cockrum

Produced by Gary Guller and Andy Cockrum 

Firelight Pictures in association with Danger Dog Films is pleased to announce the world premiere of Team Everest: A Himalayan Journey

Where: June 10 New York City Rubin Museum of Art (Art of the Himalayas) Gary Guller & Andy Cockrum attending.

"Team Everest: A Himalayan Journey" chronicles a remarkable group of trekkers on an expedition to the world's highest mountain. If they succeed in their quest, the team will be the largest group of people with disabilities ever to reach Mount Everest Base Camp. 

Five men in wheelchairs and their teammates—representing a range of disabilities—trek 21 days through the high Himalaya. From their departure in the Sherpa village of Lukla, the team will attempt to reach an altitude of over 17,500 feet in one of the most inaccessible regions on earth. A Nepali support team is engaged to help push, pull, and carry members over the rugged, steep terrain. In this part of the world, the altitude and intense cold can stop even the most experienced hikers in their tracks. Yet if the team reaches Base Camp, expedition leader and amputee, Gary Guller, will make a bid for the summit of Everest. 

With stunning footage from the Kingdom of Nepal, "Team Everest" offers a heartwarming story of personal ambition, as it dares us to reach beyond our perceived limitations and explores our unlimited capacity to dream.

About Gary: After leading a group of people with disabilities to the base camp of Mt. Everest, Gary Guller summited Mt. Everest on May 23, 2003, becoming the only person with one arm to ever scale the world’s highest peak. This accomplishment alone speaks of his integrity, perseverance and ability to motivate and inspire those around him to accomplish their dreams and to reach their full potential.  

Since that day Gary has made it his goal to inspire others with his story.   From large companies like IBM, Toyota, American Express, Freightliner,  to groups that have a goal to encourage people with disabilities like AIM Independent Living Center, POTA - Pennsylvania Occupational Therapists Association, Lone Star Paralysis Foundation, Inclusion Works Training Consortium, AIM Independent Living Center and The Arc of Jacksonville. 

Gary grew up in the Southeastern United States and has spent much of his life climbing and exploring the world, including over 35 trips to the Himalayas. He is active in his local community and is known throughout the world for his passion for exploration. Gary lost the use of his arm in a mountaineering accident just as he had found his life's passion: alpine climbing. He stunned a medical team at Duke University by asking to have his paralyzed arm amputated. After serious introspection, Gary began climbing again, surmounting the barriers that stood in the way of realizing his dreams to explore. He has inspired others ever since to continue onward and upward.
