The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) and UCLA’s Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) will be screening the documentary “High Ground” Thursday in the USU Theater.

The 7 p.m. screening will also feature a post-movie Q&A with the producer, Don Hahn, a CSUN alumnus.

“High Ground” follows 11 veterans as they attempt to climb Mount Lobuche, a 20,000 foot mountain in the Himalayas. The team, lead by blind veteran Erik Weihenmayer, symbolize their climb with their struggle to cope with emotional and physical scars from the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The screening, which is open to the public, costs $5.00, but tickets online or at the door are $10.00. All sales benefit the UCLA Bruin Battalion student group.
