A remarkable film and official film record of the legendary Everest expedition of 1924. This stunning restoration shows the third attempt to climb Everest which culminated in the deaths of two of the finest climbers of their generation, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine, and sparked an on-going debate over whether or not they did indeed reach the summit.
Filming in brutally harsh conditions with a hand-cranked camera, Captain John Noel captured images of breath-taking beauty and considerable historic significance. The film is also among the earliest filmed records of life in Tibet and features sequences at Phari Dzong (Pagri), Shekar Dzong (Xegar) and Rongbuk monastery. But what resonates so deeply is Noel's ability to frame the vulnerability, isolation and courage of people persevering in one of the world's harshest landscapes.

Stephen Horne
Stephen first started accompanying silent films at BFI Southbank over 30 years ago. He has recorded music for several DVD releases and regularly plays at major international festivals including HippFest. Although principally a pianist, he often incorporates flute, accordion and keyboards into his performances, sometimes simultaneously. Stephen won "best online silent film screening of 2020" in the Silent London Poll and in July this year released a solo album Silent Sirens inspired by the musical themes he has developed accompanying the most haunting silent films in his repertoire
