    Ostatnia góra Vod

    Ostatnia góra

    Dariusz Załuski (2019)

    K2 is one of only 14 mountains on Earth higher than 8,000m (26,247ft) tall, and it is the only one that has never been climbed in the winter. With extraordinary footage, this film tells the true story of the winter 2018 climbing attempt of K2. The expedition was led by mountaineering veterans and legends Krzysztof Wielicki, Adam Bielecki, and Denis Urubko. It was interrupted by threats of avalanches, rockfalls, and other extreme conditions—and it was marked by one of the most extraordinary, successful rescue operations performed in history of mountaineering.

    Pura vida - Nur das Überleben zählt

    Pura vida - Nur das Überleben zählt

    Migueltxo Molina (2015)

    Shortened version for the Bergewlten series of the Spanish documentary 'The ridge'. On the south face of Annapurna, at 7,400 metres, Iñaki Ochoa de Olza is dying. His rope companion sounds the alarm. And, from the other side of the world, the biggest rescue attempt in the history of the Himalayas gets underway. For four days a dozen men including some of the best mountaineers in the world, from ten countries, set out to try to rescue their stricken comrade. Even beyond his peaks Iñaki is an exceptional man. As exceptional as the rescue attempt itself and the men who risked their lives to save him. Exceptional because their one driving rule is to live. To live in the only way possible: with pure intensity and honesty.
