On va Marcher sur l’Everest (Everest, Summit of Desire)
2014 | 52 min | Feature narrative in French | English subtitles
The movie takes on an emotional and challenging topic—it reveals what climbing the world’s highest mountain is really like and shows how modern expeditions give amateur mountaineers the chance to realize their desire of Everest. The film includes outstanding footage of an ascent of the Tibetan route to Everest.
Sophie Lavaud is one of only a dozen women worldwide who climbed 2 peaks of over 8000m in one season.
As a professional conference speaker, she uses her success stories and the challenges of climbing some of the highest peaks in the world to illustrate important fundamental lessons learned for overcoming obstacles.
