Life can be beautiful. Life can be messy. Add in the struggles of addiction and life can often become overwhelming. As trauma, depression, heartbreak and declining mental health were woven into Harvey Wright’s internal fabric, so was rock climbing. Climbing gave him purpose and helped him to connect with nature, with others and with himself. Passion and healing followed but his mental health was to be massively tested by the global pandemic, with self-isolation forcing Harvey away from the climbing lifestyle.
Crux tells the story of Harvey’s recovery as he learns to love himself amidst the mountains of his life.
Crux is directed by Zac Hoffman & Casey Dubois. This film was the recipient of the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival Adventure Film Grant presented by Arc’teryx, and premiered at their 2021 Festival. Crux was filmed in British Columbia, Canada.
Film Length: 34 Minutes

WIRTH Hats Counselling Fund:
From the founding of WIRTH Hats, it has always been our mission to remove barriers that prevent people from accessing counselling. One of those barriers that many face is affordability. Through the sale of our hats, hosting events, as well as corporate and personal donations, we provide free counselling sessions for those who would otherwise be unable to afford it. Each individual who is sponsored by the WIRTH Hats Counselling Fund will receive at least 4 sessions of free counselling with a possibility for further support.
