Special Feature:

40 Years Later


Over the years, Fred Padula received so many questions about how the El Capitan film was produced, and about what happened to the climbers in the many years since that, when  two of the climbers, Richard McCracken and Lito Tejada-Flores showed up at the Taos Mountain Film Festival a couple of years ago, it seemed like an unexpected opportunity to film a mini-documentary that might answer, at least partially, some of these questions...
















Richard McCracken, Lito Tejada-Flores and filmmaker Fred Padula get together in Taos, after 40 years,  to share some memories — in the special feature, 40 Years Later
