Our goal is showing the great variety of mountains all over the world to the cinema goers. We believe that although they take up only a minute part of our planet’s surface, there is hardly any aspect of our lives left untouched by them. They are not only nature’s playground for practicing many mountain-related sports, but even more, they are source of inspiration on esthetical delight.
The most spectacular and most attractive of them are located in some of the world’s poorest countries. Sometimes they are the battleground for different maneuvers and blood-covered conflicts or place for the scheming of rioting or separatist groups.
