When Thaddeus Lamar graduated from college, he decided to put one foot in front of the other—for 2,185 miles. Lamar set out to thru-hike the Appalachian National Scenic Trail, and he brought along his camera. More than 100 fellow hikers shared their stories of adventure, hardship and camaraderie with Thad "No Pants" Lamar. What emerged was a cinematic portrait of a priceless American resource and its dedicated community.
The Round Hill Appalachian Trail Festival and B Chord Brewing are proud to present a screening of Lamar's 2019 documentary, "Barbarian Utopia: Encounters on the Appalachian Trail." Lamar's production company, Campfire Productions LLC, has previously screened the film at the Rehobeth Beach Regional Showcase and at Trail Days in Damascus, VA, to great acclaim. The documentary is currently being submitted to film festivals.
Stay after the official hours of the festival to see "Barbarian Utopia." B Chord Brewing will be screening the film at 5:30 p.m. Learn more on the documentary's Facebook page, and view the trailer on YouTube.
