Each spring, over 800 people attempt to reach the summit of Mt. Everest with a corporately sponsored team, or as an individual climber who can expect to pay up to a hundred thousand dollars for the experience. With the film crew embedded in life at base camp, 40 Days at Base Camp follows three climbing teams as they use the world's tallest mountain as a stage for personal achievement or as a platform for their cause. In a style of direct cinema combined with video diaries of climbers woven into the story, we meet the Columbian, Indian and Canadian climbing teams and witness their successes and also their failures as they pit themselves against the world’s highest peak. Meet the filmmaker at Himalayan Happy Hour 5-7 p.m. Special tour of Sherpa culture at 6:15 p.m. included in ticket.
