Everest
Teacher’s Choice @ IMAX: Choose 10am or 11:10am, Monday – Friday
Everest is an inspirational and spell-binding ascent with an international team of climbers who found hope, beauty and triumph in the wake of tragedy. The film tells the dramatic true story of the Everest Expedition’s journey to the summit, just days after the infamous 1996 tragedy in which eight climbers lost their lives in a deadly storm. Over creaking ice falls, across quaking chasms, up dangerous, towering cliffs, through a harrowing rescue of fellow mountaineers, and into the mystical danger zone of oxygen-thin altitude, the climbers and camera team maintain the spirit of determination, optimism and camaraderie that leads to miraculous achievements. Everest features the first giant screen images ever brought back from Mt. Everest. The film includes fascinating information about how this mountain was formed and continues to evolve, how high-altitude challenges a climber’s physical and mental capabilities, and how Sherpa culture and tradition permeates the Mt. Everest experience. But Everest is also a rich, dramatic story about the relationship between a group of daring human beings and the mountain they love, respect and fear.
