The Epic Of Everest
Sun 17 Nov | 16:30 | Gate Cinema

The official film record of the legendary 1924 attempt to conquer the highest mountain in the world is one of the most remarkable films in the BFI National Archive. This legendary expedition 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 did indeed reach the summit.

This restoration by the BFI National Archive’s restoration team reintroduces the original coloured tints and tones and features a specially commissioned score by Simon Fisher Turner.
