The Alps

Synopsis

Stephen Judson's documentary The Alps transports audiences to the majestic yet incomparably deadly ice wall known as The Eiger, situated nearly fourteen thousand feet about Switzerland. At that location, a courageous alpinist whose father died in a climbing accident amid the same peaks attempts to scale his way to the very top. The film both revels in scenic Alpine wonder and pays homage to the fortitude and shared spirit of the Swiss people who live near the Eiger. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
