Storm Over Everest
DIRECTOR: David Breashears CO-PRODUCER: Callie T. Wiser (For Arcturus Motion Pictures) / FRONTLINE / MAY 2008
In May 1996, a fast-moving killer storm trapped three climbing teams high on the slopes of Mount Everest. The exhausted climbers were soon lost in a fierce blizzard and far from the safety of High Camp at 26,000 feet. Renowned climber/filmmaker David Breashears, who aided the rescue efforts back then, returns to Everest to tell the fuller story of what really happened on that legendary climb.
