An epic cinematic and musical collaboration between Sherpa filmmaker Jennifer Peedom and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, that explores humankinds fascination with high places. Fellow collaborators to this unique project are British writer Robert Macfarlane (author of the award-winning Mountains of the Mind) and leading high altitude cinematographer Renan Ozturk (Sherpa, Meru). Richard Tognettis recorded score is stunning; soaring as the camera climbs vertiginous slopes or swoops across rocky peaks. With all this earthly beauty, its hard to believe that only three centuries ago, the idea of conquering a peak was considered crazy. Mountains were once solely places of peril, not beauty. The absorbing narration traces our modern day fascination – our irresistible and sometimes fatal attraction to the dizzying heights. Peedoms follow-up to Sherpa (SFF 2015) is a suitably uplifting, symphonic ode to high places.
