Willem Dafoe narrates this awe-inspiring documentary exploring humanity’s timeless fascination with mountains, with music by the Australian Chamber Orchestra and a narrative by travel-writer Robert Macfarlane.

This stunning documentary explores our timeless fascination with the world’s highest places. Breathtaking footage of climbers, skiers and mountain bikers shot by the world’s best adventure filmmakers is accompanied by a narrative written by best-selling travel writer Robert Macfarlane. The visual spectacle combined with a soundtrack performed by the Australian Chamber Orchestra makes this an immersive and mesmerising experience that has to be seen on the big screen.
(2017 Australia 74 mins)

Mountain is an unashamed tribute to the western adventurers who are willing to risk their lives climbing the world’s great heights. Collated from more than 2,000 hours of footage shot in 15 countries, Mountain is a 70-minute rush of adrenaline; a safari into the sublime; a vertiginous voyage to the top of the world … Mountain is sparsely narrated by the Hollywood actor Willem Dafoe, whose subterranean tones give gravitas to Macfarlane’s words, leaving space for the ACO’s score to create the real drama.  Janine Israel, The Guardian
