When we first hosted our live screening of Everest the Hard Way back in September, the response was incredible! We had over 600 people viewing the film and the exclusive Q&A with Sir Chris Bonington and some of the members of the original 1975 team - including Pertemba Sherpa, dialling in live all the way from Kathmandu.
We've also had many people explain that they couldn't attend the live event, or that they'd love to watch it again. So we've created a private link for everyone to see film in all it's glory, and watch a re-run of the Q&A.
You can access the film any time you want by signing up through EventBrite - tickets are available on a donation basis, there is absolutely no minimum - please feel free to donate as much or as little as you wish! Once you've registered for a ticket, the link to the film will be in the confirmation message, and also in the confirmation email. This is all you need to view the film - you will not be sent an actual 'ticket'. If you experience any problem, please get in touch on the email address below.
If you are in a situation where making a donation is difficult, for whatever reason, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for the SPECIAL OFFER. I will email you the link free of charge, no questions asked. We'd simply be delighted that you're able to enjoy this amazing film!
About this Event
It's been forty-five years since Dougal Haston and Doug Scott stood as the first Brits on the summit of Everest, and the first ever team by the south-west face. To celebrate this incredible record-breaking achievement, we are pleased to announce a very special screening of Everest the Hard Way, followed by an exclusive Q&A with some of the original members of the team.
Join Sir Chris Bonington, Pertemba Sherpa, Paul 'Tut' Braithwaite, Martin Boysen, Charlie Clarke and Mike Thompson, as we watch this truly raw documentary following the monumental feat to climb 'Everest the Hard Way'.
After this very special screening, stay tuned to watch Julie Summers lead a conversation with the Everest heroes as they reminisce the events on the mountain. You will have exclusive access to their memories and camaraderie as they recall this truly incredible adventure.
We are also delighted to inform you that the Lead Sherpa from the 1975 expedition, Pertemba, will be joining the conversation live from Kathmandu. Pertemba was one of the very few team members who summited during the expedition, whilst also leading and managing 120 other sherpas and porters, at only 26 years old.
All of the proceeds from this event will go to Community Action Nepal, a charity founded by Doug Scott himself. The money will go directly to supporting the mountain communities of the Himalaya during this incredibly difficult time.
This very special second screening of Everest the Hard Way is available on-demand, any time you wish to view it - so please be aware that the Q&A is no longer live we won't be able to respond to any comments or questions.
We hope you enjoy this incredible film! Many thank from everyone at CAN!!
