'Sherpa' Director Jennifer Peedom's 'Koyaanisqatsi' Homage, 'Mountain,' Acquired by Submarine and Dogwoof

Submarine and Dogwoof have acquired all rights—minus Australia/New Zealand and German-speaking
territories—to “Sherpa” director Jennifer Peedom’s “Mountain,” an examination of humankind’s troubled and triumphant relationship with mountains in the vein of “Baraka” (Ron Fricke, 1992) and “Koyaanisqatsi” (Godfrey Reggio, 1982).

“Mountain,” currently in production, is a collaboration between Peedom and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, and features cinematography by Renan Ozturk, the DP behind the gorgeous images of “Sherpa” and Producers Guild nomineeMeru.” Renowned author Robert Macfarlane, whose best-selling book “Mountains of the Mind” explores similar themes contained in this work, will write the narration.
