Epic of Everest
Remarkable silent film documenting the legendary Everest expedition of 1924, the third attempt to climb the mountain that led to the deaths of two of the finest climbers of their generation, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine. The trek ends in controversy over whether they did indeed reach the summit. Filmed in brutally harsh conditions using a hand-cranked camera, the amazing cinematography inspires considering the limited technology and danger of their expedition. Miraculous restoration by the British Film Institute National Archive.
UK, 1924 (85 minutes)
