K2: Touching the Sky to screen at Bertha DocHouse with Producer Q&A

Written by 

In 1986 a mass expedition of experienced alpinists ended in tragedy after their attempted climb of K2 left 13 dead in what is now known as K2’s “black summer”.

Now, almost 30 years later, the children of these climbers embark on a journey to K2’s base camp, the symbolic burial place for all those who have lost their lives on the peak.

But the journey in Eliza Kubarska’s K2: Touching the Sky is more emotional than physical. Against the stunning vistas of the Karakorum Mountains, these climbers call into question the passions that drove their parents to their death – and may yet do the same to them. The result is a moving examination of the real-life implications of the adventuring spirit.

The documentary will be showing at London's Bertha DocHouse on Friday 12th August with Producer Monika Braid and mountaineer, Chris Tullis, on hand for a special Q&A. Tickets are £9/£7 concessions // £5 Off Peak.
