Trailer revealed for Sherpa director Jennifer Peedom’s Mountain

Ahead of its world premiere at the Sydney Opera House on Monday the 12th of June, Madman Entertainment have released the official trailer for Sherpa director Jennifer Peedom’s Mountain.

Only 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?

Narrated by two time Academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe, Mountain is a cinematic and musical collaboration between acclaimed BAFTA nominated director Jennifer Peedom and the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO), one of the greatest chamber orchestras in the world. Shot by the world’s best adventure cinematographers and written by best-selling author Robert Macfarlane, this feature documentary will explore the troubled and triumphant history of our timeless fascination with mountains.
