Movie poster, Sherpa

A documentary capturing the 2014 Everest climbing season from the Sherpas' point of view.

In a horrifying twist of fate, cameras witness the worst tragedy in the history of Everest when a 14 million ton block of ice crashes down onto the climbing route through the Khumbu Icefall, killing 16 Sherpas. While the rest of the world mourns, the Sherpas unite in overwhelming grief to reclaim the mountain they call Chomolungma.

Due for release 31 Mar 2016
