    L'Everest à tout prix

    Jean Afanassieff (1999)

    Twenty years after his victorious ascent to Everest, the first for a French, Pierre Mazaud returns to Nepal and makes the journey from Kathmandu to the foot of the roof of the world. He is accompanied by Jean Afanassief who accompanied him during his victorious attempt in 1978. The film traces the history of Everest's ascents and the technological and sporting evolutions and revolutions that marked this epic. It also focuses on the consequences of globalization and the Himalayan adventure on the lives of Nepalese, the empowerment of Sherpas; it also raises the question of the consequences of this rapid evolution on safety and the environment.

    Erster auf dem Everest Vod

    Erster auf dem Everest

    Gerald Salmina (2010)

    History books tells us that in 1953, Hillary and Tensing were the firsts to conquer Mount Everest. However the German researcher Jochen Hemmleb is now casting doubt on this belief as just below the summit of Mount Everest he and his team discovered the well-preserved body of George Mallory, who in 1924 had made an assault on the peak with his climbing partner Andrew Irvine. Did Mallory stand on the summit 30 years before Hillary? To find an answer to this question, we follow Jochen Hemmleb on a further risky search expedition on the roof of the world. Using criminological methods Hemmleb and his team also hope also to find the body of Mallory’s partner, Andrew Irvine. In 1924 Irvine had a small camera with him, whose contents may provide proof as to who was actually the first person to reach Everest’s summit.

    Mount Everest 1952

    Victor Borel (1952)

    Record of the swiss expeditions to climb Mount Everest in 1952. Led by Edouard Wyss-Dunant, the 1952 spring Swiss Mount Everest expedition saw Raymond Lambert and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay reach a height of about 8,595 metres (28,199 ft) on the southeast ridge, setting a new climbing altitude record, opening up a new route to Mount Everest and paving the way for further successes by other expeditions. The film also records a second Swiss expedition in the autumn of 1952, after the monsoon, the first serious attempt to climb Everest at that time of year. A party including Lambert, Tenzing and others made it to the South Col, but was forced back by extremely cold weather after reaching an altitude of 8,100 metres (26,575 ft).
