Everest: Into The Death Zone. The 2019 season on Mount Everest was one of the deadliest on record. Images of hundreds of mountaineers queuing to reach the summit and reports of climbers stepping over dead bodies dismayed the world.

In a riveting presentation, world-class mountaineer and filmmaker, David Breashears (who has summited Everest 5 times) will discuss the growing commercialization of the world’s highest peak and chronicle the events of the 1996 Everest IMAX filming expedition and the tragedy that led to eight deaths, and the miraculous rescue of Dr. Beck Weathers.
