In 1953, the ascent of Everest remained the last of Earth’s great challenges. Standing at over 29,000ft, the world’s highest mountain posed a fearsome challenge and had already claimed thirteen lives in previous expeditions. Faced with treacherous winds, sub-zero temperatures and battling altitude sickness, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay finally achieved the impossible and became the first men to stand atop Everest. It was an event that stunned the world and defined an era. Sir Edmund Hillary’s incredible achievement remains one of the greatest adventure stories of all time; the epic journey of a man from modest beginnings who overcame adversity to reach the highest point on Earth. Both a classic triumph of the underdog story and a gripping, cinematic experience, Beyond the Edge is a tale of human endurance, tenacity and courage in the face of overwhelming odds. For the first time ever, and with the support of the Hillary family, Sir Edmund Hillary’s amazing story is brought to life on the big screen, ‘relived’ using original color footage, photographs and dramatized recreations of the assault in stunning 3D. From New Zealand director Leanne Pooley (The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls). (Dir. by Leanne Pooley, 2013, New Zealand, 90 mins., Not Rated, IFC Films) Digital 3D
