LIGHT is officially LIVE. We’re proud to share this original, debut documentary by Caroline Treadway. LIGHT reveals the hidden world of eating disorders in professional rock climbing as the filmmaker follows two best friends on their harrowing journey in a courageous narrative that breaks the silence about the sport’s darkest secret.
Angie Payne, Emily Harrington, Andrea Szekely and Kai Lightner share their struggles and insights in this powerful film about the quest for lightness and its dangerous legacy.
This film was directed, written, edited and produced by women.
We are ecstatic and honored to premiere the entire film, online, TODAY / 10 am MT / free of charge.
We hope it will spark fresh dialogue, remove some stigma and offer solace to those who need it.
Special thanks to everyone who contributed to this independent documentary.
