SYNOPSIS

One hundred years on from the first Everest expedition, the film explores the history of the expeditions in 1921, 1922 and 1924. Julie Summers, the grandniece of Sandy Irvine, guides us through the history with contributions from many distinguished climbers. The film brings the past into the present using John Noel’s original film and many images from the Alpine Club Collection. 

NOTE

[Jinna Lee, Programmer​]

Made for the 100th anniversary of the Everest expedition, the film remains poignant today, the 70th anniversary of the summit. The documentation of the first climbers is not just historical records; it connects with mountain film festivals' birth and growth.
