Afghanistan / 2011 / 52'
“7.000 mètres au-dessus de la guerre” is the story of the first Afghan ascent of Mount Noshaq, the highest mountain in Afghanistan, which reaches an altitude of 7,492 metres. Four young climbers from the Wakhan valley in the north of the country decide to organise an expedition to send a message of peace to their country, which is at war. Their adventure begins in Chamonix, where they begin to improve their climbing skills.
