Rating: 4/5 -- Watching the film is a quietly mesmerizing experience, along the lines of the Popol Vuh soundscapes in Werner Herzog's Aguirre, the Wrath of God. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- The sequences in Nepal before the climb, of daily life among the Sherpas and their families, are of rare and magical ethnographic value. Full Review

To my mind the great merit of this film is its almost abstract beauty and its direct satisfaction of a human need. It is not art, I know, but it sets an example to those who try to produce pictures which are. Full Review

Product Description:

THE EPIC OF EVEREST, a 1924 documentary about the fateful and fatal journey of two climbers, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine, who embarked on a journey up the famed Mount Everest in an attempt to become the first expolorers to scale the mountain's summit. Footage from the expedition, taken with a hand-cranked camera by Captain John Noel, has been restored by the BFI National Archive, with support from The Eric Anker-Petersen Charity, thanks to its status as a culturally significant film. As a result, various different aesthetic elements of the film are now enhanced, with a score conducted by recording artist Simon Fisher Turner and restored visual colors and tones.
