In April 2014, 16 Sherpas died in an avalanche while escorting a group of mountaineers up Everest. It was merely the latest in a series of escalating incidents that have cast a light on the sometimes uneasy alliance between wealthy climbers and the Sherpas.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Really great documentary, the Sherpas are paid but I see them almost as slaves. Slaves from western pleasing tourism industry.
There's a client that even uses the word "owner" when refering to the Sherpas boss and that says a lot.
