Australian filmmaker Jennifer Peedom follows her extraordinary Sherpa with a giant-screen celebration of the allure of the mountains. Spectacular images, shot in 21 countries by legendary mountaineer and cinematographer Renan Ozturk (Meru, Sherpa) and others, have been cut together thematically to an orchestral score drawing on Chopin, Grieg, Vivaldi and Beethoven, and featuring new works by Richard Tognetti. Written by best-selling author Robert Macfarlane, the film explores the troubled and triumphant history of our timeless fascination with mountains. ‘A sublime rush of adrenaline and orchestral beauty’ (The Guardian)
