The Epic of Everest

(Captain John Noel, 1924)

Fri, Oct 10, 2014 7 PM

Filmed in brutally harsh conditions, The Epic of Everest is the official cinematic record of Britain’s third attempt to climb the world’s highest peak in 1924. The expedition culminated in the deaths of two famed climbers (George Mallory and Andrew Irvine) and led to an ongoing debate over whether the team reached the summit or not. Among the film’s breathtaking images are some of the earliest footage of life in Tibet, including a sequence at the Rongbuk monastery. The British Film Institute’s stunning restoration reintroduces the film’s original color tints and tones. The restoration also features a new award-winning score by Simon Fisher Turner, commissioned by the BFI. (87 mins., DCP)
