Mountain (PG)

Jennifer Peedom | 2017 | Australia | 74’

Mountain is remarkable filmmaking, both an amazing cinematic experience and insightful documentary, narrated by Willem Dafoe, which focuses our attention on not one mountain specifically, but the mountain as a broad subject, our fascination with it as human beings, and the splendour of its being. Sweeping vistas, the arresting sounds of a classical orchestra and Dafoe’s voice guide us through a journey into spectacle, history and our need to conquer them, from exploration and map-making through to extreme sports and death-defying feats.
