The docudrama, which was shot in New Zealand, charts the story of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay’s 1953 ascent of Everest, using a combination of archive footage and newly shot 3D recreation.

It is produced by Matthew Metcalfe (“Dean Spanley”), and is written and directed by Leanne Pooley (“The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls”).

The film was financed by the New Zealand Film Commission in association with NZ On Air’s Platinum Fund, TVNZ, Digifilm and Rialto Distribution.
