Filmed During The Infamous 1996 Climbing Disaster Documented In Into Thin Air!
Relive a breathtaking journey to the top of the world with Everest, the spectacular giant-screen motion picture for Imax theatres!
Filmed during the infamous 1996 storm that claimed eight lives, Everest documents the filmmakers' harrowing rescue efforts to help surviving members of the ill-fated group. Join an international team of climbers as they scale the world's tallest peak. Witness the perils of skin-blistering cold, violent blizzards that drop the windchill to minus 100 degrees and air so thin it numbs the mind. Everest will take you across creaking icefalls and gaping chasms, up dangerous, towering cliffs and into the danger zone of oxygen-thin altitude. Filmed in spellbinding Imax Photography, "the most hyperrealistic format yet invented," says producer Greg MacGillivray.
Narrated by Academy Award nominee Liam Neeson, including the music of George Harrison, Everest is a rich, dramatic story - a daring adventure of triumph and tragedy.
