From My Window

Director: Franck Pickell

From her bedroom window, Melissa Simpson looks out at the highest peaks in Colorado. Despite being so close, the mountains have always been worlds away for Melissa, who was born with cerebral palsy. With the help of her friend and mentor, blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer, Melissa sets out to conquer something far greater than a summit. Through humility and grace, Melissa proves that what is within us is stronger than what’s in our way.

An official selection at over 15 film festivals worldwide and the winner of Best Short Film at the 2021 BANFF Mountain Film and Book Festival.
