Everest a gripping tale of 1996 disaster
Spend a night under the stars at Moonrise Cinema this Saturday and see Everest, a remarkable survival film based on the real events of the 1996 Mt Everest disaster.
Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everest documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind.
Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.
On the morning of May 10, 1996, climbers from two expeditions start their final ascent towards the summit of Mt Everest, the highest point on earth. With little warning, a violent storm strikes the mountain, engulfing the adventurers in one of the fiercest blizzards ever encountered by man.
Challenged by the harshest conditions imaginable, the teams must endure blistering winds and freezing temperatures in an epic battle to survive against nearly impossible odds.
The epic adventure stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal, and was shot on location in Nepal on the foothills of Everest and in the Italian Alps.
