The epic of Everest : a story of the adventures of explorers in a far-off land and their bold endeavor to reach the top of the world( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third attempt to climb Everest culminated in the deaths of two of the finest climbers of their generation, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine, and sparked an on-going debate over whether or not they did indeed reach the summit. Filming in brutally harsh conditions with a hand-cranked camera, Captain John Noel captured images of breathtaking beauty and considerable historic significance.. The film is also among the earliest filmed records of life in Tibet and features sequences at Phari Dzong (Pagri), Shekar Dzong (Xegar) and Rongbuk monastery. But what resonates so deeply is Noel's ability to frame the vulnerability, isolation and courage of people persevering in one of the world's harshest landscapes. The restoration by the BFI National Archive has transformed the quality of the surviving elements of the film and reintroduced the original coloured tints and tones. Revealed by the restoration, few images in cinema are as epic - or moving - as the final shots of a blood red sunset over the Himalayas

The epic of Everest : the official record of Mallory and Irvine's 1924 expedtion( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When George Mallory and Sandy Irvine set out to reach the summit of Everest in 1924 they came closer than any previous attempt. Inspired by the work of Herbert Ponting (the Great White Silence) Captain Noel filmed in the harshest of conditions, with specially adapted equipment, to capture the drama of the fateful expedition. But it is the brooding presence of the mountain itself that is the heart of Noel's film, and his photography captures the magical play of light and shadow on an alien landscape which enhances the vulnerabiltiy, isolation and courage of the mountaineers. This critically acclaimed restoration by the BFI National Archive includes the original coloured tints and a newly commissioned score by Simon Fisher Turner
