Mountain climber/cinematographer Jimmy Chin and his wife, writer-producer Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, turn in a thrilling, visually outstanding documentary chronicle of conquering the title Himalayan peak – one of the world’s hairiest climbs, using the Shark’s Fin route – by Chin, Conrad Anker, and Renan Ozturk. The record of their 2011 expedition has everything a climbing movie should have: a history (the men had tried before and failed), beautiful scenery, physical derring-do on a rock face at 20,000 feet, and the threat of sudden death. In electrifying HD (89 min.).
Director: Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi
