On November 8th The Pad Santa Maria and SLOMotion Film will co-host a screening of Climbing of Disaster, a short film about Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. When the storm struck, the local climbing community jumped into action, using their strength and skills to climb felled trees, to clear roadways and to boulder buildings to retrieve personal items trapped by the storm's wreckage.
The film's star climber Bryant Huffman, and directors Nadia and Dominic Gill will be joining for a conversation after the screening. We will be raising money for the climbing gym, El Bloque, that Bryant just opened in San Juan. The gym is a monument to resiliency, rebuild and community in Puerto Rico.
We will also have a raffle with proceeds going towards the El Bloque gym fund.
