Mountain

Synopsis

This spectacular documentary, a mind-blowing symphony of images and sound, chronicles the powerful attraction mountains hold over us. Not necessarily for the faint-hearted, the film carries you up the vertiginous heights of the world’s great mountains, exploring how they have fuelled our imagination with passion and fear for centuries. Peedom combines archive footage of early mountaineers with majestic shots of the peaks, the daredevil climbers who scale them and lovers of extreme sports. The result is a thoughtful and thoroughly cinematic account of humanity’s desire to scale these heights.
