Description
“K2: Siren of the Himalayas” shows the adventure, peril and serenity of a group’s attempt to climb the world’s most challenging peak. While their summit attempt hangs in the balance, we examine the risks, rewards and deeply personal nature of exploration in an age when there are few blank spots left on the map. Featuring world-class climbers Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner and Fabrizio Zangrelli as well as rare footage and still images from the 1909 Duke of Abruzzi expedition, this is the definitive historical piece on K2, tracing the parallels of high altitude exploration over the last century.
