About the Film

The Movie to Keep Squaw True tells the epic conservation story of how collectively we can rise up to defend the integrity of an incredible place–Squaw Valley in North Lake Tahoe–against corporate development. It’s the story of a seven-year saga to keep a favorite Tahoe mountain from being turned into a Vegas-style amusement park.

The Movie to Keep Squaw True is written and directed by Robb and Scott Gaffney, produced by our friends at Sierra Watch, and features a cast of enthusiastic Tahoe locals and iconic Squaw legends.

In addition, we’ll feature the Wild & Scenic Official Selection Big World and a special one-night only screening of the short film, Keep Squaw True Locals Shreddit, featuring Squaw Valley athletes and filmmakers. Be sure to stay for the post screening Q & A with stars, athletes, and filmmakers. More Info HERE.

Big World

All proceeds benefit Sierra Watch and SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival.

About the Film 

In January 2015, American rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson captivated the world with their effort to climb The Dawn Wall, a seemingly impossible 3,000 foot rock face in Yosemite National Park, California.

The pair lived on the sheer vertical cliff for 19 days, igniting a frenzy of global media attention.

But for Tommy Caldwell, The Dawn Wall was much more than just a climb. It was the culmination of a lifetime defined by overcoming obstacles. At the age of 22, the climbing prodigy was taken hostage by rebels in Kyrgyzstan. Shortly after, he lost his index finger in an accident, but resolved to come back stronger. When his marriage fell apart, he escaped the pain by fixating on the extraordinary goal of free climbing The Dawn Wall.

Blurring the line between dedication and obsession, Caldwell and his partner Jorgeson spend six years meticulously plotting and practicing their route. On the final attempt, with the world watching, Caldwell is faced with a moment of truth. Should he abandon his partner to fulfill his ultimate dream, or risk his own success for the sake of their friendship?
