"treatment of Sherpas on climbing Everest"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is not a fictional film it is a documentary. Filmed as groups of climbers started their climb up Mount Everest and the conditions the Sherpas have. It is, however, the only way they can earn their keep. It follows the problems that all the people faced after the terrible earthquake, when 16 people where killed. This shows the amazing work the Sherpas do to get climbers up this mountain. Worth watching.

The filmmakers set out to make a film of the 2014 Everest climbing season, from the Sherpas’ point of view. Instead they captured a tragedy that would change Everest forever. 16 Sherpas were killed climbing through the Khumu Icefall. 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 opposition, the Sherpas united in grief and anger to reclaim the mountain they call Chomolungma.

“A wonderfully different perspective of Everest and the Sherpa, who have long been integral to the conquering of the world's highest peak, Jennifer Peedom's docu­mentary explores many fascinating issues, although I couldn't help but think the filmmakers have tried a little too hard to tell their story. My criticism lies in the fact that Peedom has included every potential controversy instead of concentrating on the key elements of the story she is telling – namely the integral role of the Sherpa and the 360 million dollar tourist industry it enables. Nonetheless, there is a great sense of place and magnificent cinematography that allows us to share the experience of being there, amid the ice treachery and unpredictability of Mother Nature.” – UrbanCinefile – Louise Keller
