Charged depicts the incredible survival story of prestigious chef and avid outdoorsman Eduardo Garcia, who was shocked with 2,400 volts of electricity in a freak accident while hiking Montana’s backcountry in 2011. Near death, alone, and miles from help, Eduardo got up and took his first step towards what would ultimately be years of recovery and rehabilitation.
His story will be the subject of a feature film sponsored by cooler brand YETI and directed and produced by the team behind award-winning independent film Unbranded: Phillip Baribeau, Dennis Aig and Ben Masters.
The film was originally a Kickstarter project that raised $165,099. YETI’s significant contribution will support post-production, photography, finishing costs and distribution of the film. This backing further cements YETI’s commitment to content, which has seen more than a dozen short films debut in 2016 to date.
