Attempting some of the world’s most famous peaks over five years
When he was a child Kilian Jornet made a list of all the races he’d like to win and all the mountains he dreamt of climbing. In May 2017 he ticked off the last on the list with the historic double, solo ascent of Everest, without oxygen and in a single climb. It marked the climax of the Summits of My Life project which took him to some of the world’s most famous peaks over five years, accompanied by a small group of climbers.
“Path to Everest”, directed by Sébastien Montaz-Rosset and Josep Serra, follows the path that led Kilian Jornet to the highest peak in the world in an intimate portrait revealing his fears, contradictions and his desire to keep seeking new challenges so that he can continue to dream, surrounded by the mountains and people who are his inspiration.
“With Path to Everest we come to the end of Summits of My Life. It’s been a thrilling project which has opened doors to new projects and dreams for the future. I have learnt much along the way, climbing mountains that I’ve dreamed about since I was a child and meeting amazing people from all around the world. I’m delighted to be able to share these moments with whoever watches the film,” Kilian Jornet said.
