Farther Than the Eye Can See
An intimate look inside one of the most successful Mount Everest expeditions ever. The 75-minute film beautifully captures the emotion, humor and drama of blind climber Erik Weihenmayer’s historic ascent as well as four other remarkable ‘firsts’
on Mount Everest.
Shot in the same stunning quality HDTV format as the ‘Star Wars’ prequels and directed by award winning filmmaker Michael Brown of Serac Adventure Films, Farther than the Eye Can See is an intimate look inside one of the most successful Mount Everest expeditions ever. The film beautifully captures the emotion, humor and drama of blind climber Erik Weihenmayer’s historic ascent as well as four other remarkable ‘firsts’ on Mount Everest.
“Though there were questions about the wisdom of the attempt before the team even left home the clear and definitive success of the expedition proves what people working together, with a common vision,can accomplish,” says Brown.
“By rallying behind Erik, nineteen of twenty-one team members stood on the top, the oldest climber ever reached the summit along with his son, an American first. And finally, with the help of Sherpas, we were able to bring an HDTV camera along to capture historic moments with Erik and his team on the summit.”
