Everest, known by Tibetans as Chomolungma, meaning Goddess Mother of Mountains. It’s an astonishing film, beautifully restored by the British Film Institute, which shows not only the incredible landscape and daunting work of the expedition, but also scenes of life in Tibet along the way to Chomolungma. Filmmaker Noel had far less sensitive equipment than is now available – and his camera was so heavy that he had to film the final progress of the climbers from a great distance. But perhaps because of those limitations, the film feels itself susceptible and vulnerable to the actualities of land, weather, light and distance. It is not known if the two lead climbers, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine made it to the top of the mountain. They never returned.
