Four years ago, Mikey Schaefer started showing me short video clips he took with his point-and-shoot during his time in El Chalten and Patagonia. Spindrift avalanches. Open bivvies. Terrifying winds. It was gritty and honest.  Chaotic and real enough that it made me think twice about whether I was the kind of climber who really had what it took to do an FA on a Patagonian spire. “Keep pulling out that camera,” I said. “We are going to need a lot more of that.”

Well, Mikey did. And we supplemented Mikey’s footage by turning to the community and crowdsourcing as much as we could. The result is Force, a short film about Mikey, a community and a landscape.

We took it one step further and created an evening of stories, photos, film and community. We are visiting Patagonia stores across the globe. Mikey will be presenting some of his favorite photos and we’ve partnered with local non-profits at each stop. At the end of the evening, Mikey will sign and sell nine of his favorite images. Proceeds go directly to the hard-working organizations.

Watch the trailer, then see the film for free at these locations across the country.
