The Epic Of Everest 1924 - U

The Epic Of Everest 1924 - U

Amongst the earliest filmed records of life in Tibet, The Epic Of Everest 1924 is one of the most remarkable films to be restored by the BFI National Archive. Shot by Captain John Noel while he documented the ultimately doomed 1924 British attempt to reach the summit of Mount Everest, and filmed in brutally harsh conditions with a hand-cranked camera, the Epic of Everest captures the vulnerability, isolation and courage of people persevering in one of the world’s harshest landscapes.

Screened to complement the current exhibition in our Gallery, Being Human on Base Camp.
