Last week Outside Online posted their Top 10 Films from the Banff Mountain Festival which included at #9 a highly anticipated Everest documentary, 40 Days at Basecamp. It’s a feature length documentary that focuses on the realities of life at Base Camp and the devastating environmental impact that mountaineering and climate change has had on the mountain.
The film provides a modern take on the transformation of Everest from what was once a revered sacred space to the mountain theme park it is sadly becoming.
The film is currently in limited release, but if you have an interest in mountaineering or Everest, it looks like a documentary worth tracking down.
