    Kampf um den Himalaja

    Kampf um den Himalaja

    Franz Schröder (1938)

    Epic documentary about the german expeditions to Nanga Parbat up to 1937. After a first unsuccessful attempt in 1932 and the tragical second expedition led by Willy Merkl in 1934, in 1937 Karl Wien led another expedition to the mountain following the same route as Merkl's expeditions. Progress was made, but more slowly than before due to heavy snowfall. About 14 June seven Germans and nine Sherpas, almost the entire team, were at Camp IV below Rakhiot Peak when it was overrun by an avalanche. All sixteen men died. The film was assembled in 1938 with rescued 16mm material shot during the 1937 attempt and footage from the previous expeditions.

    Lost on Everest Vod

    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.

    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.
