Everest Without Sight

BY KEVIN AUGELLO
@ VOL 12 ON JUL 01, 2015

"Basically everything in our expedition was blessed (by Tibetan Monks), our ropes, our ice axes ... and it would turn out later that we would need this blessing."

In Everest Without Sight from PechaKucha Night Leiden Vol. 12, Kevin Augello, founder of New Earth Films, a British rooted documentary production company, whose clients include the BBC, National Geographic and Discovery Channel, aims to share the diversity and natural history of Planet Earth. In this moving presentation he shares about his emotional journey while filming the extraordinary attempt of Dr Thomas Weber, a visually impaired climber with a mission to reach the summit of the North Face of Mount Everest in Tibet. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, January 25th, 2016.
