The Sum­mit is an award-win­ning 2013 doc­u­men­tary that fol­lows the sto­ry of 25 climbers who in 2008 attempt­ed to sum­mit K2, a Himalayan mon­ster that’s con­sid­ered one the world’s most per­ilous peaks.

K2 is only 237 meters short­er than Mt. Ever­est and one out of every four climbers who attempts its sum­mit dies. The climb­ing is bru­tal with steep tech­ni­cal sec­tions on ice pitch­es and unpre­dictable weath­er. Some years its sum­mit goes com­plete­ly untouched.

The Sum­mit, which picked up the Edit­ing Award in the World Cin­e­ma Doc­u­men­tary cat­e­go­ry at the Sun­dance Film Fes­ti­val, attempts to explain why K2 has a rep­u­ta­tion as The Sav­age Moun­tain and explain what hap­pened on that fate­ful day in August 2008 when 11 climbers died attempt­ing the fabled peak.
