Mountain
Jennifer Peedom | Australia | 2017 | 74m | PG

MountainOnly three centuries ago, setting out to climb a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. Mountains were places of peril, not beauty, an upper world to be shunned, not sought out. Why do mountains now hold us spellbound, drawing us into their dominion, often at the cost of our lives?

Written by Robert Macfarlane, this documentary explores the trouble and triumphant history of our timeless fascination with mountains. Narrated by Willem Dafoe.
