Jeff Lowe’s Metanoia screened at the jam-packed Boulder High School at 5 p.m. It was received with a standing ovation from a very enthusiastic and emotional audience.
Jeff Lowe hails from Louisville, Colorado, and has an avid following here in Boulder. He is a legendary rock climber who was the first to summit many mountains, including Metanoia, the North Face of the Eiger in the Swiss Alps, during the winter. Jeff is living with a disease similar to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
The film told his journey, and he explained that right now is the most exciting journey he has ever been on. At the end of the film, Jeff and his partner, Connie, came to the stage and were joined by his sisters, daughter, and granddaughter. His family members said they were so grateful for this experience, as it really gave them a chance to show Jeff how much they love him.
To see the family on stage, and their undeniable strength, was moving. This experience, and the amazing film, had most of the audience in tears. The film’s director, Jim Aikman, is from Boulder and joined the team onstage for the Q&A session.
