When mountaineers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine set out to climb Mount Everest in 1924 they came closer than any previous attempt, but unfortunately the trip culminated in their deaths, leaving the question of whether or not they reached the summit forever unresolved. Filming in brutal conditions with a hand-held camera, Captain John Noel captured historic, and breathtakingly beautiful images of their trip. Everest is at the heart of the film, helped by Noel’s extraordinary ability to capture the isolation and courage of people struggling to survive in one of the world’s harshest landscapes. The film is also among the earliest filmed records of life in Tibet. Painstakingly restored by experts at the BFI, this is a splendid example of cinema at its most epic and moving – made doubly so by the fact that this gem had remained hidden from audiences for so long. The film is accompanied by a specially commissioned musical score featuring a combination of electronic music, found sounds, western and Nepalese instruments and vocals.
