Karakoram

36-86 ou cinquante ans apres

Modernized version of the original Karakoran film by Marcel Ichac himself for the fiftieth anniversary of the expedition in 1986. The film is a record of the first French Expedition to the Himalayas, which attempted to climb the Hidden Peak (Gasherbrum I) in 1936. The expedition was led by Henry de Ségogne, with Jean Charignon, Pierre Allain, Raymond Leininger, Jean Carle, Jean Deudon, Louis Neltner, Jacques Azémar, doctor Jeand Arlaud and cinematographer Marcel Ichac. Weather conditions, logistic problems and a strike among the sherpas forced the team to abort at 6900m on the south side. The film received the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1937.
