Radical Mountain


Since the mid-2000’s, Hawkins has been embarking on a series of ambitious, narrative-laden, interwoven interdisciplinary projects, including an attempt to realize Radical Mountain – an alpine adventure film about the conquest of a summit with an elevation of zero; a making-of documentary about the aborted first attempt; and a fictionalized documentary about the auteur’s campaign to secure the acting services of Val Kilmer.


With the film still underdevelopment, Hawkins has amassed a large body of related works including: Soil Core Samples allegedly from “the summit”, a convoluted DJIA stock “mountain” chart claiming to identify evidence of the formation of a flat mountain, a large cast aluminum upside down right side up mountain depicting an exaggerated inversion of the identified “probable” location of the flat mountain, and more.
