Deals have been signed for U.K. (Metrodome), German-speaking Europe (Polyband), and Japan (Kadokawa). Altitude is negotiating further deals at the American Film Market, where the film will screen.

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.
