THIS SCREENING REQUIRES A RESERVATION | RUSH TICKETS AT THE DOOR In 1965, Jim Whittaker, the first American to summit Mt. Everest, invited Senator Robert Kennedy to ascend a remote mountain in the Yukon named after his brother, the late president, JFK. Jim and RFK became great friends, and Jim delivered the eulogy at RFK’s funeral. Fifty years later, the sons of the original climbing team – Bob Whittaker, the former road manager of Mud Honey and R.E.M., and Chris Kennedy, Bobby’s son – embark on an expedition to climb the mountain on the 50th anniversary of their fathers’ famous climb. Featuring interviews with and instrumentals by Eddie Vedder and never-before-seen footage of RFK.
