    Lost on Everest

    Renan Ozturk (2019)

    Reaching 29,029 feet, Mount Everest has long captivated mountaineers of all stripes. But a peak that draws athletes and mountaineers to new heights isn’t without danger — or a dark side. Perhaps the peak’s greatest mystery is the missing body of Andrew “Sandy” Irvine who disappeared alongside George Leigh Mallory in 1924 just 800 vertical feet from the summit. In Lost on Everest, we follow along as a team of elite climbers with new intel on the location of his missing body set out to solve what may be mountaineering’s great mystery. Along with the body, the team hopes to find Irvine’s camera and the footage that could rewrite history.

    Gone tomorrow

    Mike Wilkinson (2019)

    Nearly every winter for just a brief moment, in Kentucky there are more frozen waterfalls than anywhere else in the lower 48 states, maybe even the whole world. For the last 40 years, small groups of dedicated adventurers have been searching out and climbing this ice with a determined passion, because they know if it’s climbable today, it’ll probably be gone tomorrow. This adventure documentary takes the audience for a ride deep into the bushy hollers of Appalachia with a crew of harmless misfits as they race to search out and climb new ice routes before they're gone.

    Limi Vod

    Limi

    Ulysse Lefebvre (2019)

    On the borders of Nepal and Tibet lie a series of mountain ranges that remain largely untouched. Blank areas, as geographers like to call them; expanses of pastel shading applied by mapmakers to depict the unknown. Proof that there are still corners of the vast Himalayan chain, home to the world's highest mountains, where the inquisitive alpinist can find untrodden sanctuaries to explore. A small group of mountaineers trek for twelve days through unspoiled landscapes and unexpected encounters to set up their base camp and attempt snow-capped peaks on Limi mountain. As the journey progresses, the film questions these peregrinations, mountaineering becoming a pretext for exploration.
