Irish Documentary Selected to Screen at Sundance Film Festival

Irish documentary The Summit has been officially selected to screen in competition at Sundance 2013.

Written by Academy Award winner Mark Monroe and executively produced by Academy Award winners John Battsek and Simon Chinn The Summit attempts to understand what happened on the day that became known as the most tragic in modern mountaineering history when 11 of the 22 climbers attempting to get to the summit of K2 were either killed or vanished within the space of 48 hours.

Directed by Nick Ryan, The Summit had its world premiere at the 56th BFI London Film Festival in October.


The Sundance Film Festival runs 17 – 27 January 2013
