Olymp to Everest

Seen the movie too now

There was a long delay before the showing of the movie Olympos to Everest (see previous post). The reason was that more than double the expected viewers had shown up, so they were setting up a second projection. When that was done, there was another delay to get the audio working again. Finally we saw the movie.

I was moved. The film is really strong, telling a strong story. It's a documentary, so when there's drama, there's real life drama, when we're laughing, we're laughing with real people. Given that I was there with the members of a Greek mountain club, many of the people around me knew the people on the screen in person. There is indeed a lot of drama and a lot of good laughs in the movie. There are also images of tough and beautiful mountain landscapes.

What is the movie about? To quote one description:

"Από τον Όλυμπο στο Έβερεστ" - "η συναρπαστική ιστορία μιας ομάδας νεαρόν που κατέβηκε πρώτη φορά από το χωριό τους στον Όλυμπο για να πάει να φάει κλαμπ στα Έβερεστ στην Αθήνα".

Ups, wrong description from the cheap joke department! In fact it's the story of the first Greek expedition to succeed to the top of mount Everest. But it's more like a group of guys who succeed over themselves to reach farther than they ever did before (and yes, there was another Greek up there before, but that's not really the point).
