The Epic of Everest

Special Screening

Wednesday, March 30, 2016
7:00 PM–8:30 PM

1924, UK, John Noel, 87 min.

With a special introduction by George Mallory’s granddaughter, Susan Robertson

Filming in brutally harsh conditions with a hand-cranked camera, Captain John Noel captured images of breathtaking beauty and considerable historic significance. The film is probably the earliest filmed record of life in Tibet and features sequences at Phari Dzong (Pagri), Shekar Dzong (Xegar) and Rongbuk monastery. But what resonates so deeply is Noel’s ability to frame the vulnerability, isolation and courage of people persevering in one of the world’s harshest landscapes.

“Spooky, entrancing.”— Time Out London

“This movie is all about the awe-inspiring visuals, mist rolling off the mountain top, glaciers twinkling in the evening light—and the crowning glory is the blue-tinted Fairyland of Ice sequence.” –– Silent London
