Mountain is basically the subreddit Earthporn but in film form. For 80 minutes or so, you witness mountains in glorious HD film and the film shows ranges from all around the world, from Anarctica to Scotland. Featuring a very dramatic score and narrated in poetic prose by Willem Dafoe, we admire the mountains from afar and very personally, as the film also captures our relationship with mountains and the dangers that are associated with it.
You don’t learn a whole lot about mountains, but it’s quite a glorious film from an aesthetic point of view.
It’s playing this weekend at Hot Docs, click here for more information
