"MOUNTAIN" - May 11TH


MOUNTAIN

Directed by Jennifer Peedom
Narrated by Willem Dafoe

Opening Theatrically May 11th, 2018 

"One of the most visceral essay films ever made" - Harry Windsor, The Hollywood Reporter


"The pictures are remarkable.  It's something to seek out on the big screen" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian


"A visual and musical spectacle that showcases the majesty of nature and man's helplessness to it." - Gayle MacDonald, Globe and Mail

Only three centuries ago, setting out to climb a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. Mountains were places of peril, not beauty, an upper world to be shunned, not sought out. Why do mountains now hold us spellbound, drawing us into their dominion, often at the cost of our lives?
From Tibet to Australia, Alaska to Norway armed with drones, Go-Pros and helicopters, director Jennifer Peedom has fashioned an astonishing symphony of mountaineers, ice climbers, free soloists, heliskiers, snowboarders, wingsuiters and parachuting mountain bikers. Willem Dafoe provides a narration sampled from British mountaineer Robert Macfarlane’s acclaimed memoir  Mountains of the Mind , and a classical score from the Australian Chamber Orchestra accompanies this majestic cinematic experience.
