A team of 20 elite Nepali climbers venture into the Death Zone of Mount Everest to restore their sacred mountain and the contaminated water source of 1.3 billion people. They ascend the highest point on the planet to the 150 bodies of deceased climbers and 100,000 pounds of rubbish that remain on the high slopes of Everest. This is the self-documented story of their life-threatening journey.
User Reviews: I believe this has gotten a re-release with Patrick Stewart providing the narration–although I’m not 100% sure. I do know that as of June 2019, it is streaming on Amazon Prime in USA.rnrnThis is a really interesting documentary about the difficulties of Everest. There are many ways that you can tell an interesting story about the highest point on Earth and this one comes from the perspective of the Sherpa and their quest to de-trash the mountain.rnrnIt’s very matter-of-fact with most of the camera work on the ascent being shot on GoPro’s worn by the Sherpa themselves. It totally works and Patrick Stewart’s narration does a good job filling in any gaps. The Sherpa themselves are interesting and give us a great perspective on their experience.rnrnIt’s a great watch for people who appreciate the environment and are interested in being a good steward. It’s illuminating to see exactly what the climbers see and understand the risks of their lifestyle. Would recommend!
