The Epic of Everest

12/10 - 2PM
$12/free for members

Climbers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine disappeared on the third attempt to climb Mount Everest—sometime either before or after reaching the summit. In impossibly harsh conditions, with a hand-crank camera, Captain John Noel recorded the beauty of scene and the courage of the climbers; the twin serenity and terror of their isolation. The epic and mysterious climb’s original tints and tones have been beautifully restored by the BFI National Archive, along with a newly commissioned score by Simon Fisher Turner.

Dir. J.B.L. Noel, 1924, DCP, 87 min.
