Mountain world premiere and 1 million trailer views

Sydney Film Festival announced their line-up for the 2017 edition of the festival and it included the world premiere of Mountain.

MOUNTAIN is a cinematic and musical collaboration between acclaimed director Jennifer Peedom (SHERPA) and the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO), one of the greatest chamber orchestras in the world.MOUNTAIN will look at the troubled and triumphant history of our timeless fascination with mountains…a juxtaposition of image and music to explore the powerful force that mountains hold over the imagination of so many. From Antarctica to Hawaii, the canvas for MOUNTAIN is immense. Renowned author Robert Macfarlane, whose bestselling book ‘Mountains of the Mind’, explores the very themes contained in this work, will write sparse, poetic narration as narrated by Willem Dafoe.

Mountain reached new heights with over a 1.3 million trailer views across Instagram and Facebook. On top of a storm of new views, the trailer featured on the Instagram feed of exploration storytellers National Geographic where it gathered over 1 million watches.
