You could say we are obsessed with mountains. Climbing them, hiking them, taking photos of them. Opening theatrically on May 11, Mountain explores the nature of our fascination and captivation with the majestic formations.

Director Jennifer Peedom follows mountaineers, ice climbers, free soloists, heliskiers, snowboarders, wingsuiters, and parachuting mountain bikers with drones, Go-Pros, and helicopters in Tibet, Australia, Alaska, and Norway. The film features narration by actor Willem Dafoe, sampled from British mountaineer Robert Macfarlane’s acclaimed memoir Mountains of the Mind, and a classical score from the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
