K2 2009

submit to reddit

2009 was the 100th anniversary of the Duke of Abruzzi's expedition to K2. Ursus Films traveled to Northern Pakistan to attempt the climb, to film the expedition and to examine the personal nature of exploration in the modern age when there are few blank spots left on the map. This short film introduces us to alpinist Fabrizio Zangrilli as he leads a commercial expedition to K2 and reflects on his many trips to the mountain.

For Dave's firsthand account of the expedition please refer to our blog.
