In “The Ghosts Above,” Sony Artisan photographer and filmmaker Renan Ozturk join an expedition to solve the Mount Everest mystery of who reached the summit first.
Suprised you chose this.
Watched this earlier in the week and just found the whole thing monumentally distasteful. Ozturk essentially paying lip service to the issues surrounding Everest and then committing every sin he claims to have recognised. As if a degree of introspection gives him and the team carte blanche to act with impunity.
"If there's no peace with you we won't climb" - then they go ahead and do what they want regardless of the feelings of the sherpas. Just acknowledging that you're a colonialist without modifying your behaviour shouldn't be enough to salve your conscience. Paid or not and regardless of wealth and privilege disparity its not ok to lie to a climbing partner about your intentions on a route.
The old bloke sums it up
“ it’s greed “
great cinematography but as a story this is a non event.
