Eliza Kubarska: a different regard

TOP 50 image

Eliza Kubarska’s latest film, The Wall of Shadows, offers a very different take on Himalayan climbing to the heroics highlighted by most previous films.

Focusing as much on the Sherpas as on the westerners they are accompanying on an attempt to climb Jannu, she provides a more introspective view, full of candid exchanges. She also gives local people to express their thoughts about the arrival of foreign expeditions in the middle of their sacred mountains.

The Wall of Shadows received the Best Climbing Film award at the 2020 Banff Film Festival.
