If you’re in one of those places right now that’s getting beaten down with the summer heat, the upcoming documentary “Beyond The Edge” might be a good visual cool-down. It will take you to the chilly heights of Mount Everest, all in 3D, and telling you the true story of one of the greatest expeditions to one of the world’s most notorious peaks.
In 1953, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay set out to conquer the 29,000 foot world wonder in order to become the first men to put their feet on the top of Everest. And director Leanne Pooley re-enacts this tale, mixing contemporary and archival footage, recordings, vintage interviews and much more, to present a portrait of the historic climb. And as you’ll see in this exclusive clip, Hillary and Norgay’s journey was a treacherous one, with risks and dangers facing them almost every step of the way.
“Beyond The Edge” opens on Friday, July 4th in New York, Los Angeles and VOD.
