L'OMBRE DE LA MONTAGNE - CONQUERANTS DE L'INUTILE
France / 1992 / 26'
In the Himalaya there are the highest mountains on earth to which men have attributed great simbolic values. At the foot of Nanga Parbat, 8125 metres, two climbers are talking about the pros and cons of the fascinating sport of alpinism. Over 70 years old, Charley Houston, talks with enthusiasm about the pioneers and their dramas; Siegfried Hupfauer comments on the excitement of those who wanted to take the Nazi flag up high.
