Our Judges say:
"Before this expedition we were all pretty anti-Everest." "I distract myself from the pain by looking into the camera." Interesting and extraordinarily beautiful alternative view of climbing Everest with good depiction of the contribution of the sherpas. The tone is sombre but it's a great-looking and artistic film.
Paul Hodgson Music Judge
A beautifully different climbing film.
Classily produced Everest film searching for a body missing from a previous summit attempt.
A team sets out to solve one of the greatest mysteries in exploration: who made the first ascent of Mt. Everest. Every stereotype they know about the mountain and its people are turned on its end during this brutally honest look at the current state of affairs during one the busiest Everest seasons in history.
