Only three centuries ago, setting out to climb a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. Mountains were places of peril, not beauty, an upper world to be shunned, not sought out. Why do mountains now hold us spellbound, drawing us into their dominion, often at the cost of our lives? MOUNTAIN is a cinematic and musical collaboration between acclaimed director Jennifer Peedom (Sherpa: Trouble on Everest) and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, one of the greatest chamber orchestras in the world. Shot by the world's best adventure cinematographers, written by best-selling author Robert Macfarlane (Landmarks, Mountain of the Mind) and narrated by actor Willem Dafoe, this stunning feature documentary explores the troubled and triumphant history of our timeless fascination with mountains. "The pictures are remarkable. It's something to seek out on the big screen." - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
