“Everest – The Boy Who Dared”

Michael Dillon (Australien) - 72 min

Christopher Harris was a very naughty baby. He was forever out of his cot. At four years of age he started climbing rockfaces, and very soon after, mountains.
At twelve he had climbed the highest mountain in Australia, New Zealand and Africa.
At thirteen he climbed Europe’s highest peak, Mt Elbrus. When he had just turned fifteen he climbed South America’s Mount Aconcagua, the world’s highest peak outside of Asia, it’s summit just 1800 metres below Everest’s. And so he wondered. Could he climb those extra 1800 metres? Could he, at the age of fifteen, climb Everest? So he and his father set off to find out.
