Expedition „Koordinata - McKinley 2013”
Society „Koordināta” in cooperation with the film studio „Vides Filmu studiju” (Wildlife and Environmental Film Productions) organizes high-altitude expedition to Alaska, to the highest mountain in North America – McKinley (6194m). Expedition aim is to reach the peak in mixed style: high-altitude and alpine style.
By creating a documentary film cycle about McKinley’s mountaineering history of 100 years, which comes in summer 2013, we will present the people whose lives have been closely associated with the mountain, and show the historical ascent of Latvian climbers and look at the harsh northern natural beauty. In recent years, Latvian Television demonstrated as well Latvian as foreign documental films, which shows some travel stories and adventures. Unfortunately, these films are not reflected in high-altitude mountain expeditions, whose reception requires serious work and training, but professional films about the Latvian climbers climbing are not filmed at all.
