Mountains Without Barriers

Mountains Without Barriers, sponsored by the Verizon Foundation, documents the extraordinary people and revolutionary technologies at "No Barriers Dolomite 2005," a festival held in the heart of the Italian Dolomites.

Nicky Lynch's article in the Banff Film Festival Magazine entitled, “Mission Possible in the Dolomites,” says it best:

"The jagged peaks of the Dolomites tower over three climbers as they approach a formidable rock wall. They are about to attempt the Cassin route on one of the three freestanding limestone towers known as the Tre Cime di Lavaredo. The opening scene of Mountains Without Barriers begins as a straightforward climbing story. What isn’t immediately obvious is that the two of the three climbers, Erik Weihenmayer and Andy Holzer, are blind and the third, Hugh Herr, is a double-leg amputee. They are participating in the No Barriers Festival, which seeks to improve quality of life through spirit and technology. The festival creates opportunities for people with disabilities to learn new skills and to exchange ideas and dreams with those who create the technologies to assist them… ‘Seeing is believing, but a greater reality is that believing is seeing,’ says Weihenmayer. That belief is evident throughout Mountains Without Barriers."
