The Epic of Everest (Includes DVD)
  • Description

    A film by Captain John Noel. The Official record of Mallory and Irvine's 1924 Expedition.

    The 1924 Everest expedition culminated in the deaths of two of the finest climbers of their generation, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine, and sparked an ongoing debate over whether or not they did indeed reach the summit.

    Filming in brutally harsh conditions with a specially adapted camera, Captain John Noel captured images of breathtaking beauty and considerable historic significance. The film is also among the earliest filmed records 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.

    The restoration by the BFI National Archive has transformed the quality of the surviving elements of the film and reintroduced the original coloured tints and tones. Revealed by the restoration, few images in cinema are as epic - or moving - as the final shots of a blood red sunset over the Himalayas.

    Features newly commissioned music score by Simon Fisher Turner.

Authentic movie

Although it's until today still not clear if the died on their way-up or down. The film is a documentary masterpiece, taking in account the mean that they had in these days to make such a movie. If you compare it with Everst 2016 wich was shot on mountains of Spain and France. Pretending they were on Everest. Its fascinating to see, how these brave people wrapped in clothes far from our modern technology pulled out en effort like this. The movie is shot in black and white, 5/8, no sound only music. Fascinating, if you're interested in Everest and it's past, a movie to have. Few years ago they found the body of Hilary, unfortunately no camera with the proof of being on the top. Recently science claimed in the weather conditions at that moment, they were not able to reach the top. Well probably we will never know, but what we do know is the bravery of these men
