The third attempt to climb Everest 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.

MUBI's take

The Epic of Everest is a record of an expedition to climb Everest that acts as a mind-blowing historical document, an ethnographic work, and a visually staggering film of early cinema (in color!). Discover breathtaking landscapes, faces, and places for a moment of pure escapism.
