Everest: A Climb For Peace

Everest: A Climb For Peace

Narrated by Orlando Bloom and hailed as a “tremendous achievement” by the Dalai Lama. Everest: A Climb for Peace is not just a typical Everest film, but a socially relevant documentary about peace, war, and the human spirit – an inspirational film, which has some of the most incredible Everest footage ever shot, including a dramatic rescue from near the summit of Everest. Filmed on location in Nepal, Tibet, Israel, Palestine, Jordan, U.A.E, and the United States, the film chronicles the spectacular journey of 9 ‘peace climbers’ from different faiths and cultures as they climb to the summit of the tallest mountain in the world. The focus is on Palestinian Ali Bushnaq and Israeli’s Dudu Yifrah and Micha Yaniv. They come together and set aside their differences to forge a path of teamwork and cooperation to attempt to summit the world’s highest peak. This however, is easier said than done. Their nations have been embroiled in a brutal war for years; each believes they are on the right side of that war and each knows that on Everest the cooperation of your teammate is a matter of life and death. “Everest: A Climb for Peace” is extremely dramatic from start to finish. Visually stimulating it also provides the audience with a powerful yet simple message: in an atmosphere of peace and through friendship and teamwork anything can be accomplished, even climbing the world’s highest peak with your perceived enemy.
