The Mountains Will Wait For You

Sometimes making a film is by the numbers.  Sometimes it is an odyssey – it may even span decades from concept to completion.

That’s the case with The Mountains Will Wait For You, the story of Grace Hudowalski, matriarch of the Adirondack 46ers club – an organization whose members climb the 46 peaks in the Adirondack Park.  Grace, the first woman to ascend all 46 peaks, was an avid proponent of members writing about their experiences, and corresponded with thousands of climbers – a feat in itself.  Director Fred Schwoebel’s incredible journey making the film was not unlike climbing the rugged peaks.  After many stops and starts and years of working on the film, as it turned out, the mountains had waited for him.
