Movie Info

Only three centuries ago, setting out to climb a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. Mountains were places of peril, not beauty, an upper world to be shunned, not sought out. Why do mountains now hold us spellbound, drawing us into their dominion, often at the cost of our lives? MOUNTAIN is a cinematic and musical collaboration between acclaimed director Jennifer Peedom (SHERPA) and the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO), one of the greatest chamber orchestras in the world. Shot by the world's best adventure cinematographers and written by best-selling author Robert Macfarlane, this feature documentary will explore the troubled and triumphant history of our timeless fascination with mountains.

A visual and musical spectacle that showcases the majesty of nature and man's helplessness to it.

One of the most visceral essay films ever made, with Peedom and her Sherpa altitude cinematographer Renan Ozturk unfurling a series of glistening images that should be seen only on the biggest of big screens.

Anyone remotely fascinated with mountains needs to see this film.

In spite of the sometimes lofty turns of phrase, Mountain is most awe-inspiring in its quieter moments.

High-altitude skiing, para-skiing, ice-climbing, wing-suit gliding. At some moments - like when we see skiers engulfed by avalanches - Mountain is practically a "snuff film." At others, it's a purely meditative experience.

Craggy. But worth it for the views.
