Kumu Documentary. Mountain
10 Jan
Kumu auditorium
This spectacular documentary, a mind-blowing symphony of images and sound, chronicles the powerful hold mountains have over us.
The film carries you up to the vertiginous heights of the world’s great mountains, exploring how they have fuelled our imaginations with passion and fear for centuries. Peedom combines archive footage of early mountaineers with majestic shots of peaks, the daredevil climbers who scale them and lovers of extreme sports. The result is a thoughtful and thoroughly cinematic account of humanity’s desire to scale these heights.
