The Awam Tibetan Buddhist Institute, 3400 E. Speedway, will show the film "Sherpa" 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17. 

The film details the stories of the local guides who help climbers scale Mount Everest. 

The movie night is free, but the institute asks that visitors bring food to share and a donation toward monthly rent.
