Overview
Without Sherpas, no one scales Everest. Yet those who benefit least from the climb often pay the greatest price. This film festival darling and BAFTA nominee set out to tell the Everest story from the Sherpas' point of view. When a tragedy in 2014 left 16 Sherpas dead, the disaster provoked a drastic reappraisal about the role of the Sherpas in the Everest industry. Jennifer Peedom's documentary is a "grippingly human and political" (Screen Daily) work that "packs an emotional punch" (Variety). 96 min, 1 DVD, CC. Mature audiences.
