4 Wheel Bob

Director Tal Skloot and subject Bob Coomber in person to discuss their documentary film

Bay Area filmmaker Tal Skloot will present his film portrait of Bob Coomber, who will join him for discussion.

4 Wheel Bob follows Coomber, an intrepid adventurer who sets out to be the first wheelchair hiker to cross the 11,845-foot Kearsarge Pass in the Sierra Nevada.

Bob had grown up in Piedmont in a family of avid backpackers and, while hiking in his early 20s, shattered his leg in a struggle related to juvenile diabetes and subsequent osteoporosis. After a period of depression, Bob adopted a philosophy of “no excuses” and, confined to his wheelchair, took increasingly strenuous hikes, using only his arms to get around.
