The third and final installment of Breckenridge Creative Arts’ 2017 three-part series National Geographic Live features mountaineer Hilaree O’Neill in a program entitled “Point of No Return” on Saturday, April 15 at 7:30 pm at the Riverwalk Center.

In the fall of 2014, a National Geographic team set out on what they knew would be a harrowing journey to the summit of Burma’s Hkakabo Razi to determine if it is indeed Southeast Asia’s highest point. What they didn’t realize was that the greatest obstacle wouldn’t be their dwindling rations or the grueling jungle hikes or the life-endangering hypothermia. It was the force of conflicting personalities that threatened to unravel the entire endeavor. Leader Hilaree O’Neill recounts the tough decisions she had to make to keep the team together, accompanied by photographer Cory Richards’s dramatic stills and clips from Renan Ozturk’s searing documentary, Down to Nothing.

“We are thrilled to once again be partnering with National Geographic and hope others join in our excitement for the opportunity to see and hear the stories these incredible people have to share,” said Robb Woulfe, President and CEO of Breckenridge Creative Arts. “We look forward to providing our community with another exhilarating season that will inspire and entertain audiences of all ages.”
