WILLIAMSTOWN >> "Namuli." a community-backed film about what happens when a team of biologists, conservationists and rock climbers set off on a daring and unconventional expedition into one of the world's least-explored and most-threatened habitats, Mount Namuli in Mozambique, will be screened 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Williams College's Paresky Center.

The screening will be accompanied by a presentation by the film's director, professional climber, author and expedition leader Majka Burhardt.

The film follows an international crew as they push the bounds of friendship, climbing conventions, and scientific research on the 2,000-foot granite face of Mozambique's second highest mountain, Mount Namuli.

In addition to Burhardt, the film features professional climber Kate Rutherford, Brazilian entomologist Flavia Esteves, South African entomologist Caswell Munyai, and Mozambican herpetologist Harith Farooq.
