About the film:
Written and produced by a professional skier, Chris Anthony. Mission Mt. Mangart follows the 10th Mountain Divisions trailblazing efforts by an infantry unit of world-class athletes during WWII. Anthony stumbled upon the division’s exploits during his skiing career, and this documentary delves into untold tales from a perspective by Chris Anthony. Taking six years to complete this story found Anthony and would not let him go. This journey allowed him to stumble across the information needed to put this documentary together in a timeline only he could execute.
Mission Mt. Mangart focuses on building educational tools and juxtaposing the innocence of the 10th’s ski race during wartime with the context of the international instability at the time. This mission has been produced as an educational program under the umbrella of the Chris Anthony Youth Project, which aims to keep the legacy and sacrifices made by American troops alive. Much like his previous documentary effort in partnership with Warren Miller Entertainment and the Colorado Snowsports Museum, Climb to Glory.
