This spring, 5 Point Film teamed up with a nonprofit called Big Heart Big Hands to host a panel discussion about the trauma and loss involved in backcountry rescue and recovery. Big Heart Big Hands raises money for mountain rescue teams and provides counseling support to those impact by mountain incidents.

The conversation was held in kiva at True Nature Healing Arts in Carbondale. We pick up with moderator Bobby L'Heureux of Big Heart Big Hands.


Aspen native Elizabeth Stewart-Severy is excited to be making a return to both the Red Brick, where she attended kindergarten, and the field of journalism. She has spent her entire life playing in the mountains and rivers around Aspen, and is thrilled to be reporting about all things environmental in this special place. She attended the University of Colorado with a Boettcher Scholarship, and graduated as the top student from the School of Journalism in 2006. Her lifelong love of hockey lead to a stint working for the Colorado Avalanche, and she still plays in local leagues and coaches the Aspen Junior Hockey U-19 girls.
