EntSun News/10779621
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. - EntSun -- Zach Jordan, writer, director, cinematographer, and co-producer of "Carpe Kilimanjaro: An Alzheimer's Story" will include Johnson City, Tennessee as one of the cities he will be visiting for his documentary project. He is an award-winning Founder/Partner at Joe Digital, Inc. and has created and developed content for some of the leading platforms in traditional and new media. As a documentary filmmaker, he worked as a camera man on "America's Deadliest Catch," was a producer and cinematographer on "Buckle Brothers: A Documentary on the Soul of a Cowboy," which was one of 10 documentaries chosen to premiere at the 2005 AFI Film Festival in LA, and as a camera man on "Derailroaded," the award-winning documentary on Wild Man Fischer.

"Carpe Kilimanjaro: An Alzheimer's Story" is Zach's award-winning film of one man's ascension of a mountain and his metaphorical ascension to fatherhood, in the face of his own father's Alzheimer's diagnosis. He honors us with this documentary of his family's journey and the coming-of-age story of hope, courage, and love.

When Zach Jordan learned author Mary Olson was inspired to write her children's books due to her mother passing away with the disease, Zach decided to travel to Johnson City and make it a part of his documentary. Mary Olson's books, When the Sun Shines Through and Grandpa, Is that you?, published through Jan-Carol Publishing, are children's books written to help a child understand Alzheimer's Disease. The books have been recognized throughout different Alzheimer's support organizations.
