MOUNTAIN is a cinematic and musical collaboration between acclaimed director Jennifer Peedom (SHERPA) and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, one of the greatest chamber orchestras in the world.
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?
Shot by the world’s best adventure cinematographers and written by best selling author Robert Macfarlane, and narrated by Willem Dafoe, this feature documentary explores the troubled and triumphant history of our timeless fascination with mountains.
MOUNTAIN is currently screening around Australia through Madman Entertainment.
