Everest: A Climb for Peace

Video Release Date: October 26, 2008
Video Source: YouTube

Narrated by actor Orlando Bloom, Everest: A Climb For Peace has been hailed by the Dalai Lama as a “tremendous achievement”. Not just your typical Everest film, this socially relevant documentary explores peace, war and the power of the human spirit. Filmed on location in Nepal, Tibet, Israel, Palestinian territories, Jordan, U.A.E and the United States, Everest: A Climb For Peace chronicles the spectacular journey of nine peace climbers from different faiths and cultures as they embark on their journey, believing that “It’s through actions of peace that peace is spread”. Palestinian Ali Bushnaq and Israeli’s Dudu Yifrah and Micha Yaniv come together to forge a path of teamwork and cooperation while attempting to summit the world’s highest peak—not an easy task, considering their nations have been embroiled in a brutal war for years and each believes they are on the right side. It will be Everest that tests their spirits, as they each know that it is there, on the highest point in the world, that cooperation is a matter of life and death.
