FIAF is pleased to present the exclusive screening of The Summit of the Gods by Patrick Imbert, an adaptation of the famous manga by Jira Taniguchi. The story initially unfolds as a mystery: were George Mallory and his companion Andrew Irvine the first men to scale Everest on June 8th, 1924? Only the little Kodak VPK camera found in Kathmandu, 70 years later, can reveal the truth. But soon, following the path of a young Japanese journalist, Fukamachi enters the world of obsessive mountaineers, on a journey that leads him, step by step, towards the Summit of the Gods.

Spectacular and emotional, this film is “an ode to extreme climbers “ (IGN)
