60 YEARS OF THE CLIMB OF K2 ON THE SCREEN IN MILANO (ITALY) IN "SPORT MOVIES & TV"

“Sport Movies & Tv 2014” celebrates the 60 years (31 July 1954) of the K2 (the second-highest mountain on Earth, after Mount Everest) with two documentaries.

K2: siren of the Himalayas” (Ursus Films – USA) focuses the adventure, peril and serenity of a group’s attempt to climb the world’s most challenging peak. While their summit attempt hangs in the balance, we examine the risks, rewards and deeply personal nature of exploration in an age when there are few blank spots left on the map. Featuring National Geographic’s 2012 Explorer of the Year, Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner and rare footage and still images from the 1909 Duke of Abruzzi expedition, this is the definitive historical piece on K2, tracing the parallels of high altitude exploration over the last century.

 

K2 - La montagna degli italiani” (RAI Radiotelevisione Italiana – Italy) highlights the story of twelve men (Achille Compagnoni, Lino Lacedelli, Walter Bonatti, Mario Puchoz led by geologist and researcher Prof. Ardito Desio), twelve climber, twelve different ways of living the mountains, but with one dream: to become the first ever to conquer the top of K2. Twelve strong personalities, inevitably destined to be in conflict, ready to risk their lives, to leave their families and their loves, and to deal first with themselves and then with that mountain, which seems endless.
