STORY 

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.


PRESS

"One of the most visceral essay films ever made, with Peedom and her Sherpa altitude cinematographer Renan Ozturk unfurling a series of glistening images that should be seen only on the biggest of big screens."  - The Hollywood Reporter
