Best Mountaineering Film

18. 2. 2022

Through the story of outstanding Slovak mountaineer Zoltan Demjan, the film answers the question of why we risk our lives to climb high mountains. Despite his incredible achievements, such as climbing the extreme south face of Lhotse Shar without supplemental oxygen in 1984, the climber remained unknown in Western Europe, on the other side of the Iron Curtain. The story is illustrated by Zoltan’s previously unseen film archives.
