Dirtbag (2017)  NR  96 Minutes

Fred Beckey is the original American "Dirtbag" climber whose name has evoked mystery, adulation and vitriol since the 1940s. Beckey's stubborn, singular quest to conquer peaks meant a solitary life on the road, where he left a long trail of scorned climbing partners and lost lovers in his wake.

The groundbreaking life story of this rebel athlete, who inspired generations with his monumental first ascents, eloquent books and the lifestyle he fearlessly pioneered, is told for the first time in this exclusive documentary film. There is only one Fred Beckey. His legacy in the mountains will live on forever.

The SJCT Summer Film Series features a variety of independent films and documentaries.

The series is the brainchild of islander Larry Soll, who has always enjoyed independent films and wanted to have the opportunity to see them on the island. “The goal is to offer mind-broadening experiences for islanders," said Larry.
