About the film:

Written, directed, edited, and produced by professional skier, documentary filmmaker, and Colorado Snowsports Hall of Fame inductee, Chris Anthony.

‘Mission Mt. Mangart’ follows the 10th Mountain Division’s trailblazing efforts by this experimental infantry unit made up of world-class athletes, mountain men, and Cowboys during WWII. The 10th Mountain Division left behind an indelible legacy equally matched by their legendary Heroism during wartime.

While many stories have been created about the 10th’s history, this documentary delves into those untold tales from a unique perspective by professional skier Chris Anthony who serendipitously stumbled upon the division’s exploits during his own skiing career. Taking six years to complete, this story found Anthony and would not let him go. Anthony’s life journey was designed to be the person that would stumble across the ingredients needed to put this documentary together in a timeline only he could do.

Anthony tells the story as a flashback from the present-day while jumping back in time to follow the 10th from 1939 – June 3rd,1945 with in-depth narration as well as interviews of original 10th Mountain Division soldiers.

The documentary also touches on the twenty-five men who went missing in Lake Garda, Italy April 29th, 1945, during the Battle for Torbole and Riva Del Garda – a sacrifice that until recently, went relatively unnoticed.

Portions of the documentary are filled with the voices and firsthand accounts from veterans of the 10th, Many of who have passed on. One of those soldiers is still with us today and played an important role in Chris Anthony’s research.

Bruce Campbell was part of the 87th. He left home when at the age of 17, signed up for the War Effort, and ended up in Camp Hale, Colorado with the 10th because of his athletic skills.

‘Mission Mt. Mangart’ was produced as educational programming under the umbrella of the Chris Anthony Youth Project whose mission is to build engaging educational tools, juxtaposing the innocence of the 10th’s ski race in the midst of wartime with the context of the international instability at the time.

Much like his previous documentary effort in partnership with Warren Miller Entertainment and the Colorado Snowsports Museum, “Climb to Glory,” Anthony aims to keep alive the legacy and sacrifices made by American troops.

Proceeds raised screening ‘Mission Mt. Mangart’ support the mission of the Chris Anthony Youth Project.
