High Altitude Film Series: Jeremiah Johnson
May 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Set in the mid-19th century, after the Civil War, the film centres on Jeremiah (Robert Redford) as he becomes disillusioned with the ways of his civilization and the ravages of war, as he sets out determined to survive in the Rocky Mountain wilderness by himself. “At the time, Jeremiah Johnson was perfectly in sync with the prevailing counter-cultural attitudes and the film’s environmental themes (close to the heart of Redford) and its anti-establishment, Thoreau-like message struck a chord with audiences and made it a hit.” (Turner Classics). Based on the novel Mountain Man by Vardis Fisher and filmed on location in picturesque Utah.
