Sherpa (2015) (7/10)

List item

Sherpa tells the story of the 2014 Ice avalanche at Mount Everest and the subsequent closing of the climbing season that year.  This movie focuses on Phurba Tashi who has successfully made 21 climbs of Mt Everest and is working for a New Zealand expedition company. 

As they were filming tragedy strikes and an avalanche kills 17 Sherpa who were heading up the mountain to setup camps. The movie changes focus from Phurba to the rescue effort and then the fight between Sherpa and foreigners who are accused of risking the Sherpa lives. 

Unfortunately the following year a massive earthquake hit Nepal and the climbing season was again postponed until 2016.
