Combining stunning images, a haunting classical score from the Australian Chamber Orchestra and the words of mountaineer Robert Macfarlane, this extraordinary documentary explores the powerful force that mountains hold over our imagination. Why do mountains hold us spellbound often at the cost of our lives? From Tibet to Australia, Alaska to Norway armed with drones, Go-Pros and helicopters, director Jennifer Peedom has fashioned an astonishing symphony of mountaineers, ice climbers, free soloists, heliskiers, snowboarders, wingsuiters and parachuting mountain bikers. Prepare to be amazed by this vertiginous tour of the world’s most dramatic scenery.

And the critics say…
“It is a dizzying experience. Mountain brings together some of the strongest adventure sport cinematography of recent years, ricocheting around the planet, from Nepal to New Zealand and Austria to Antarctica, in an exhilarating game of vertical pinball.” Ed Douglas, The Guardian
“…one of the most visceral essay films ever made, with Peedom and her Sherpa altitude cinematographer Renan Ozturk unfurling a series of glistening images that should be seen only on the biggest of big screens.” Harry Windsor, Hollywood Reporter
“Acrophobes will want to stay home. Others are likely to find the Australian documentary “Mountain” an exhilarating vision of many of the world’s highest — and most gorgeously photogenic — peaks, and the intrepid sorts who set out to conquer them.” Walter Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle
“Ozturk’s cinematography would be stunning even without such remarkable subjects, and the film is a visual delight from start to finish.” Jennie Kermode, Eye for Film
