Gordon College to screen ‘High Ground’


The Barrington Arts Center at Gordon College in Wenham will hold a special showing of “High Ground,” an acclaimed documentary by three-time Emmy-winning director Michael Brown, on Thursday. The film follows 11 veterans recently returned from Iraq and Afghanistan as they scale the Himalayas, along with a Gold Star mom, blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer, and a team of guides. The event is part of Benjamin Patton’s “I Was There” film workshops designed for veterans coping with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury, held in Hamilton at the Patton Homestead. Patton, a filmmaker and author, is a member of the town’s famous military family; he conducts the film workshops around the country. Brown will be a guest instructor at the workshop, run during the day from Tuesday through Friday. On Thursday at Gordon College, Grapevine Road, there will be a reception at 6:30 p.m. followed by the film at 7 p.m. and a question-and-answer session with filmmakers Patton and Brown.
