K2: Siren of the Himalayas
“Offers great beauty while capturing something of what pulls the adventurous to try to reach the world’s second highest peak.” –Time Out New York
For every four people who have reached the summit of K2, one person has died trying. This breathtaking film follows an historic attempt to summit the world’s most challenging peak on the 100-year anniversary of the Duke of Abruzzi’s landmark K2 expedition in 1909. World-class alpinists Fabrizio Zangrilli and Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner team up with veteran climbers Jake Meyer and Chris Szymiec in a dangerous foray of high altitude mountaineering.
