Just outside of Yosemite in Bass Lake, CA, lies High Sierra, a study abroad campus for Azusa Pacific University students that emphasizes communal living, a focus on the liberal arts, outdoor experience, and spiritual development. Each semester, around 40 students come up to Bass Lake to discover the opportunities that High Sierra has to offer them.
As part of the curriculum for an advanced film production course at APU, as well as for promotional purposes for the High Sierra semester, this documentary was produced to explore some of the major tenants of the High Sierra program and the stories of the students and staff who have been impacted by their experiences in Bass Lake.
