Dokiõhtu #47: Mountain
There are so many people who would like to climb Mount Everest that people are literally queuing up in front of the world's highest mountain – the ultimate selfie spot! But the view from the top is also great, and Everest is not the only mountain that attracts daredevils from near and far. 'Mountain' is a beautiful film about man's fundamental fascination with the most sublime things that nature has to offer – narrated by a witty and cheerful Willem Dafoe. There is plenty of adrenaline and overwhelming scenery, which takes the breath away from even the most dedicated climbers, as some of the planet's best mountaineers set off on a vertical adventure with their own lives at stake. Several miles above sea level, the air is thin and the smallest error can mean death. So why would some people risk everything to get to the top – a challenge that just a few decades ago would have been viewed as sheer madness.
