When the premise of a film deals with the story of a group of people away from civilization in which one by one members of said group die on mysterious
circumstances, a standard horror flick comes to mind. Nonetheless, such description of horrendous occurrences applies not to a fictional narrative with the
purpose of sensational gruesomeness, but to a true story of man against nature in a hostile environment. Nick Ryan's documentary The Summit attempts to piece together the events at the K2 Mountain in August 2008, a series of tragedies that lead to 11 people being
killed.But, at such great heights, with the brutal damage to the senses, the weather, fatigue, and fear, it's hard to decipher why
did it all happen.
