Ever­est a grip­ping tale of 1996 dis­as­ter

Pilbara News - - Pilbara Lifestyle -

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.
