If you are a fan of mountains exploration this trailer outta get you psyched. With footage from the world’s best adventure cinematographers paired with narration by Willem Dafoe and music from Australian Chamber Orchestra, this looks to be a potent combination showcasing the history of high altitude exploration.

“Only three centuries ago, setting out to climb a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. Mountains were places of peril, not beauty, an upper world to be shunned, not sought out. Why do mountains now hold us spellbound, drawing us into their dominion, often at the cost of our lives? MOUNTAIN is a cinematic and musical collaboration between acclaimed director Jennifer Peedom (SHERPA) and the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO), one of the greatest chamber orchestras in the world. Shot by the world’s best adventure cinematographers and written by best-selling author Robert Macfarlane, this feature documentary will explore the troubled and triumphant history of our timeless fascination with mountains.”

MOUNTAIN will go run, June 12 – August 20, with a live performance by the ACO. Book now at http://www.mountainmovie.com.au
