An Adventure Movie About Veterans to Watch on Netflix

If you have the Monday following Veteran's Day off and are looking for something to do inside, the movie High Ground can now be streamed on Netflix. The 91-minute documentary follows 11 wounded warriors from Iraq and Afghanistan on a mission to climb the 20,000-foot Lobuche in Nepal. Part of the movie was filmed during an Outside Adventure Film School project led by three-time Emmy-winning filmmaker Michael Brown.

Brown recently appeared on Last Call With Carson Daly to talk about the three-year process of making the film. You can watch that interview below.

If you'd rather watch the film in a theater, there's a listing of select showings on the High Ground website. If you'd rather read about the expedition, reporter Brian Mockenhaupt wrote "The Other Side of the Mountain" for Outside's April 2011 issue.
