Doc Soup Calgary - Official Selection, Hot Docs 2014|
The Summit: Nick Ryan | United States | 2012 | 99 min.
In August, 2008, 18 mountain climbers reached the top of K2. 48 hours later, 11 people were dead. While memorials paid tribute to those killed, there were also condemnations about 'the why.' Why do these athletes risk everything to reach a place humans are simply not meant to go? With breathtaking cinematography and jaw dropping reenactments based on the testimony of those who survived the climb, this
thrilling film is about the very nature of adventure in the modern world.
