In 1953, the ascent of Everest remained the last of Earth’s great challenges. Both a classic triumph of the underdog story and a gripping, cinematic experience, Beyond the Edge is a tale of human endurance, tenacity and courage in the face of overwhelming odds. For the first time, and with the support of the Hillary family, Sir Edmund and Tenzing Norgay’s story is on the big screen, relived using both original footage, journal writings, and dramatized re-creations of the assent in stunning 3D. 2013, DCP, 90 minutes.
