    Mountain Quest

    37 minutes
    2018     Documentary     Australia

    A lone climber, suspended hundreds of feet in the air, struggles to find the next finger hold, defining progress in inches. The dramatic visuals immerse us in a gripping contest of human determination versus the reality of gravity's potent grip. Mountain Quest explores the precarious relationship of humanity's quest to scale some of the world's highest places, while also revealing the scientific and technological advances that have enabled us to conquer these peaks, exposing the heartbeat of the human soul.

    A tapestry of jaw-dropping action, combined with rich STEM content ... for example, physics of the real world -- how climbing is a tug-of-war between friction and gravity, while skiing involves the same battle of forces in reverse. Educational insights about the engineering of climbing gear and skis, and the aeronautical effects of a wingsuit, are seamlessly integrated with dramatic visuals and action.
