Synopsis

Director Jennifer Peedom set out to uncover tension in the 2014 Everest climbing season from the point of view of the Sherpas, and instead captured a tragedy when an avalanche struck, killing 16 Sherpas. 'Sherpa' tells the story of how the Sherpas united after the tragedy in the face of fierce opposition to reclaim the mountain they call Chomolungma.
