THE SUMMIT OF THE GODS (Le Sommet des dieux) 
Directed by Patrick Imbert, 2021, PG, 1h34, Courtesy of Netflix

Were George Mallory and his companion Andrew Irvine the first men to scale Everest on June 8th, 1924? Only the little Kodak VPK camera they took with them might reveal the truth. In Kathmandu, 70 years later, a young Japanese reporter named Fukamachi recognizes the camera in the hands of the mysterious Habu Jôji, an outcast climber believed missing for years. Fukamachi enters a world of obsessive mountaineers hungry for impossible conquests on a journey that leads him, step by step, towards the summit of the gods. 
Based on the manga series Kamigami no Itadaki, written and illustrated by Jiro Taniguchi (2000-2003), which was itself based on a novel by Baku Yumemakura. 

Presented in partnership with the Washington Square Park Conservancy.
