Screening: The Epic of Everest
dir. J.B.L. Noel (1924)
3rd November | 5:00 pm
The third attempt to climb Everest in June 1924 culminated in the deaths of two of the finest climbers of their generation, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine, and sparked an on-going debate over whether or not they reached the summit. Filming in brutally harsh conditions with a hand-cranked camera, Captain John Noel captured images of breathtaking beauty and considerable historic significance. The film is very much a document that reflects the time it was made in. It is also among the earliest filmed records of life in Tibet and features sequences at Phari Dzong (Pagri), Shekar Dzong (Xegar) and Rongbuk monastery.
Recently remastered by the British Film Institute, the unique original colour toning of some of the sequences has been restored, with a new score by Simon Fisher Turner.
