Edmund Hillary from New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay from Nepal were two ambitious mountaineers whose only passion was to stand atop the highest land mass in the world, and in the late Spring of 1953, they achieved their dream by ascending Mount Everest. They may have inspired a generation of humanity who were finally beginning to see vast extent of human endeavour after years of tragedy with World War II, but the treacherous obstacles and dangers they faced are not as widely known as their triumphs. In those days, it was difficult to get a Himalayan expedition approved by the official overseers, so the fact that it took a once in a lifetime opportunity to motivate these individuals into achieving something that man has never managed before was truly staggering and should never be forgotten.
'Beyond The Edge' is an astonishing documentary about the details of Hillary and Norgay's voyage featuring original colour archival footage, photographs, interviews and dramatic re-enactments starring Chad Moffitt and Sonam Sherpa among others now in stunning 3D. It has been directed by Leanne Pooley ('The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls', 'The Promise', 'Haunting Douglas') who co-wrote the onscreen story with Matthew Metcalfe ('The Ferryman', 'Soldiers of Fortune', 'Relocated Mountains').
Starring: Chad Moffitt, Sonam Sherpa, John Wraight, Joshua Rutter, Daniel Musgrove, Erroll Shand, Phurenje Sherpa, Jimmy Kunsang, Callum Grant, Matthew Metcalfe, Pasang Dawa Sherpa
