On DVD this BAFTA-nominated Discovery Channel film from director Jennifer Peedom "Sherpa - Trouble on Everest" takes a poignant look at how Mount Everest’s Sherpa community united in grief and anger to reclaim the mountain, following the deadly avalanche that struck on 18 th April, 2014, which killed sixteen of their members.
The project originally began as a documentary about the upcoming climbing season from the Sherpas’ point of view, following a highly-publicised confrontation in 2013 between them and a group of western climbers. Peedom and her team planned to focus on legendary Sherpa Phurba Tashi’s world record-breaking attempt to summit Everest for the 22 nd time.
Instead, they captured the single deadliest day in the mountain’s modern history after an avalanche struck the Khumbu Icefall, the area just above base camp. Through the voices of the guides themselves, their families and the climbers who were preparing to summit when the disaster struck, Sherpa chronicles a historic moment of tragedy and resistance. The disaster provoked a drastic reappraisal of the Everest climbing industry, and served as a turning point for many of the Sherpas and their families as they considered whether they should even continue at all.
