IFI & SDGI: DIRECTORS IN DIALOGUE SERIES

Director: Nick Ryan

95 minutes, Ireland-U.K., 2012, Colour, D-Cinema


The IFI and Screen Directors Guild of Ireland (SDGI) are delighted to present The Summit: Directors in Dialogue where director Nick Ryan will join fellow documentary director Martina Durac to discuss the making of The Summit, following this public screening.

The Summit is an epic feature documentary based on the worst K2 climbing disaster in history. Twenty-four experienced climbers, including Irish adventurer Ger McDonnell, were nearing the peak of the world’s most dangerous mountain, K2. Within the space of 48 hours, 11 of them had vanished or lost their lives.

Blending actual footage from the climb with recreated scenes, this film examines the most basic aspects of human nature placed at the mercy of Mother Nature.
