Premiering documentary follows autistic man as he climbs Mount Kilimanjaro

The exclusive premiere of documentary, Follow the Sound of My Voice, will take place Saturday, October 15 with a full day of events in celebration of the film. Activities include adaptive archery and cycling, a Q&A with director Ben Stamper and subject Troy Shumway, and a screening of Follow the Sound of My Voice. Centered around the story of a young man’s experience climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with autism, the film is a study in resilience. This day-long event will be located at Santy Auditorium at the Park City Public Library and runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Despite his autism, Troy Shumway has never backed down from a challenge; whether attending college, or climbing one of the highest mountains in the world. This is his story,” reads the movie’s tagline. A graduate of Utah State University, Troy Shumway has told his story to raise awareness and money for the Aggies Elevated Program.

Other events scheduled for the premiere include free popcorn, information about Autism support services and research and a screening of Ben Stamper’s documentary Don’t Foil my Plans. Also discussing autism, Don’t Foil my Plans follows the story of a young musician coming of age.
