On Sept. 7, 2008, Bonner Paddock stood on the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, some 19,340 feet above Tanzania.
That marked the end of a journey that started when Paddock was first diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a child.
Paddock’s climb is the subject of Kent Bassett’s documentary “Beyond Limits,” which the Park City Film Series will screen on Friday, July 10, in the Jim Santy Auditorium of the newly remodeled Park City Library.
Usually the Park City Film Series will screen films from fall to spring, but this screening is an exception, said executive director Katharine Wang.
“This year, with our move back to the Santy Auditorium, we wanted to use the space as quickly as possible and are trying to put together a few summer events and get people into the auditorium,” Wang told The Park Record.
The event will also include a pre-screening reception in the third floor community room, across the hall from the auditorium.
Tickets are $30 and can be purchased by visiting www.parkcityfilmseries.org . Since alcohol will be served, the screening is open to attendees ages 21 and older.
“We were able to pull a single-event permit, so the cost of a ticket will also include a glass of wine or signature cocktail and entrance to a reception in the third floor community room, across the hall from the auditorium,” Wang said.
The price will also include a copy of Paddock’s new book, “One More Step,” which is about his climb as well as his experience competing in the 2012 Iron Man competition in Kona, Hawaii.
