IN THE NEAR FUTURE OR PERHAPS THE RECENT PAST:
Guided by failure and hopelessness, a ragtag team of mountaineers sets out on a adventure that transcends the normal bounds of storytelling. They seek nothing less than the summit of the sacred mountain that provides a physical path between Earth and Heaven.
MOUNT SHASTA is a Photo-Novella. A story told not only with words, but with photo-documentation. In the late 1990’s, contemporary artist Peter Santino, set out to make to a movie inspired by a beloved book. With the help of a group of intrepid friends, the mountain was climbed on September 9th, 2001. The cataclysmic events of two days later infused the pursuit with urgency and the work was published as a streaming Macromedia Flash® project on the www.santino.tv website.
