In August 2008, 18 climbers reached the summit of K2. Forty-eight hours later, 11 people were dead. What happened on that fateful day has never been fully resolved. The Summit uses found footage, realistic reenactments, and interviews with survivors, as it zigzags back and forth in time, interweaving multiple narrative threads to piece together one of the deadliest days in mountain-climbing history. Through breathtaking cinematography, director Nick Ryan creates a tension-filled experience that will have you on the edge of your seat.
Director Nick Ryan and Festival speaker Cecilie Skog in attendance.
