Sherpa: Trouble on Everest

Filmed during the tragic climbing season of 2014 that forever changed how Mount Everest’s lucrative tourist industry operates, this film packs an emotional punch to match its awe-inspiring imagery.

At 6.45am on 18th April, 2014, a 14 million ton block of ice crashed down onto the climbing route through the Khumbu Icefall, killing 16 Sherpas. It was the worst tragedy in the history of Everest. The disaster provoked a drastic reappraisal about the role of the Sherpas in the Everest industry. Sherpa, tells the story of how, in the face of fierce opposition, the Sherpas united in grief and anger to reclaim the mountain they call Chomolungma.
