Beyond the Edge

Drama 1h 31m 2013

Thrilling, definitive docu-drama on Sir Edmund Hillary’s historic 1953 scaling of Everest with sherpa Tenzing Norgay.

Faced with treacherous winds, sub-zero temperatures and battling altitude sickness, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay finally achieved the impossible and became the first men to stand atop Everest. It was an event that stunned the world and defined an era.

Both a classic triumph of the underdog story and a gripping, cinematic experience, BEYOND THE EDGE is a tale of human endurance, tenacity and courage in the face of overwhelming odds.
