Chris Bacon is the composer of the upcoming documentary High Ground. The film directed by Michael Brown tells the true story of eleven wounded veterans whose road to recovery takes them to the top of a Himalayan giant on a journey to heal the wounds of war. Don Hahn (The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast) is producing the project. The movie was shot on location in Nepal and the United States and follows an expedition that teamed disabled veterans with world recognized mountain climbers, including blind Everest summiter Erik Weihenmayer. High Ground is expected to make its festival premiere in 2012.

Bacon who is best known for scoring this year’s critically acclaimed sci-fi thriller Source Code has also written the music for the family movie Beethoven’s Christmas Adventure.
