Davis native Jason Fitzpatrick brings his award-winning feature documentary, “Mile … Mile and a Half,” to Woodland for a screening at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 7. Fitzpatrick co-produced and co-directed the film with Ric Serena.

The movie is hosted by UC Davis sports psychologist Jennifer Gildner, a climber with Summit for Someone. The showing is part of a fundraiser for Big City Mountaineers and will take place only if at least 80 people reserve tickets by April 30 at www.tugg.com/go/80r5b9.

The documentary follows the epic journey of five friends who leave behind their daily lives to hike California’s historic John Muir Trail, a 211-mile stretch from Yosemite to Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the contiguous United States. Their goal — complete the journey in 25 days while capturing the sights and sounds they encounter along the way.

Inspired by their bond, humor, artistry and dedication, the group continues to grow to include other artists, musicians and adventure-seekers.

Before they reach the summit, hikers and viewers alike affirm the old adage: It’s about the journey, not the destination. “Mile … Mile and a Half” is the feature-length documentary of that journey.

Fitzpatrick — who combined his passion for nature with his love of filmmaking — has nearly 20 years of film and television industry experience, working on everything from network sitcoms to studio features.

In its 13th year, Summit for Someone — a fundraising program owned by and to benefit Big City Mountaineers — is the No. 1 mountaineering fundraiser in the country. Big City Mountaineers, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, instills critical life skills in under-served urban youths through transformative wilderness expeditions. BCM has a hub in the Bay Area that will benefit directly. Five percent of ticket sales and all proceeds from raffles and donations go to BCM.

Gildner has been working at UCD for the past three years. Gildner’s next summit goal is Mount Shasta, her first trek above 14,000 feet.
