    K2 - Triumph and tragedy on the savage mountain

    K2 - Triumph and tragedy on the savage mountain

    Barry Reynolds (1988)

    Chris Bonington and Jim Curran trace the history of K2 expeditions from 1903 to the disastrous loss of life in the summer of 1986, when 13 climbers died on K2, climbing tragedies that aggressively carved the epithet the 'savage mountain' into the public consciousness. Jim Curran was hired by the British 'Fuller’s K2' team to document their attempt on the unclimbed NW Ridge, so he was at the mountain, all summer. Inevitably, his documentary ended up drifting into a gripping narrative from the front line of the disastrous and tragic summer that killed 13 climbers on K2.

    Italia K2

    Marcello Baldi (1955)

    The film documents the Italian expedition to K2 in 1954, led by Ardito Desio, who saw the conquest of the summit by Achille Compagnoni and Lino Lacedelli. The film is ideally divided into three parts: the preparation of the expedition in Italy, the march of approach to the base camp, and the climb to the summit. Compared to similar works made by other expeditions of the time, Italy K2 presents the novelty of showing the shots taken just from the summit. These shots were made by the same Compagnoni and Lacedelli. The film does not delve into the events that led to the death of Mario Puchoz, and does not mention what happened with Walter Bonatti the day before the conquest of the summit.
