TSR is an organization based in Adams that hosts the annual Thunderbolt Ski Race on Mount Greylock.
Get Reel! will take place on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 3 p.m., at the Beacon Cinema on North Street. Admission is $10 and advanced ticket sales are available at Berkshire Outfitters in Adams; The Arcadian Shop in Lenox; and Ski Fanatics in Lanesborough. Admission includes a drawing for door prizes donated by local merchants.
The event will feature two documentary films. Stephen Grynberg's award-winning film, "A Life Ascending," that profiles the life of Ruedi Beglinger, acclaimed ski mountaineer and extreme mountain guide. Living on a glacier in the Selkirk Moun tains of British Columbia with his wife and two young daughters, Beglinger leads a wholly unique life.
The second film, "Purple Mountain Majesty Redux," was produced and directed by Blair Mahar, a Berkshire County resident and first president of the Thunderbolt Ski Runners. It chronicles the rich history of the Thunderbolt Ski Trail.
