The Academi of Life Presents an evening in conversation with author, entrepreneur, investment banker, philanthropist and filmmaker Herta Von Stiegel. At the New York Society for Ethical Culture, you'll get to see Von Stiegel's award-winning documentary, the Mountain Within
, which is a about climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. After having to turn back during her first attempt at climbing the mountain more than a decade ago, Von Stiegel returned on her 50th birthday. This time, she paired a group of seven people with disabilities with able-bodied climbers as a benefit for Enham, a non-profit that empowers people with disabilities. The emotionally-charged mountain climb is documented in this film, which provides several invaluable lessons about preparation, attaining success and hanging on to your vision. After the film, hear Von Stiegel talk about her obstacles and achievements in both climbing the mountain and making the film.
