Join us on Wednesday, March 28th for a unique cinematic and musical collaboration between the Australian Chamber Orchestra and BAFTA-nominated director Jennifer Peedom (SHERPA), MOUNTAIN is a dazzling exploration of our obsession with mountains.
Only three centuries ago, climbing a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. The idea scarcely existed that wild landscapes might hold any sort of attraction. Peaks were places of peril, not beauty. Why, then, are we now drawn to mountains in our millions?
Narrated by Willem Dafoe, MOUNTAIN shows us the spellbinding force of high places – and their ongoing power to shape our lives and our dreams.

“A 70-minute rush of adrenaline; a safari into the sublime” ★★★★ – The Guardian
“One of the most visceral essay films ever made, with Peedom and her Sherpa altitude cinematographer Renan Ozturk unfurling a series of glistening images that should be seen only on the biggest of big screens.” – The Hollywood Reporter
