K2 and the Invisible Footmen
Available on iTunes
K2 is widely seen as the world's harshest mountain. Yet many indigenous porters make a living in its extreme conditions, carrying provisions for foreign climbing expeditions. Often risking their lives with only rudimentary equipment, they receive minimal pay for their efforts. Against a backdrop of breathtaking natural beauty, this cinematic doc explores the everyday courage and sacrifice of the men who call the 'Savage Mountain' their home. A beautifully composed film, portraying the indigenous porters who for decades have facilitated the ascent of the Earth's second-highest mountain.
