July 13 – 19
From the director of the BAFTA-nominated Sherpa and narrated by Willem Dafoe, Mountain explores the nature of our modern fascination with mountains in collaboration with 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.
