When a fierce snowstorm strikes the Sierra Nevada Mountains in February 2003, former professional and Olympic hockey player Eric LeMarque becomes stranded for eight days, when he has no choice but to come face-to-face with his dark past and looming personal demons. Through the rediscovery of faith, Eric defies all odds by overcoming the challenges of Mother Nature and battling the brutal realities that have shaped his life.
“We’re thrilled to bring this event to fans nationwide and further strengthen Fathom’s inspiring collection of faith-based content,” Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. “Not only will viewers get to witness the impressive cinematography on the big screen, but they’ll be moved by LeMarque’s story and encouraged to carry what they learn beyond the movie theater.”
“I’m so excited about partnering with Fathom Events to bring this story to audiences nationwide for a one-night only special event,” said director Scott Waugh. “This story is near and dear to my heart, not only because I made it with a first class cast and crew, but because I’ve known Eric for years and am in awe with his tale of survival and path to recovery. The themes of hope and never giving up will resonate with every member of the family and we can’t wait to share it with audiences.”
“6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain” will also be available everywhere on demand and digital HD on October 13.
