          Only three centuries ago, setting out to climb a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. The idea scarcely existed that wild landscapes might hold any sort of attraction. Mountains were places of peril, not beauty. How then have mountains come to hold us spellbound, ...drawing us into their dominion, often at the cost of our lives? By the time Mount Everest was vanquished in the midtwentieth century, mountaineering had become a quest for mastery rather than a search for mystery. Mountains were seen as adversaries to be overcome; places where fear could be taken to the edge or beyond. Millions are now enchanted by the magic of mountains. And where once their remoteness protected their purity, mountains have today become theatres for recreation: managed and commodified as parks and playgrounds. But mountains are so much more than an escape, or an enemy to be overcome. Their greatest value lies in their power to inspire wonder and awe: to remind us of the limits of our schemes and ambition. The Australians Jen Peedom, director of Sherpa, and Richard Tognetti, artistic director of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, drove this very international collaboration that also involved US-based cinematographer Renan Ozturk, British writer Robert Macfarlane and American actor Willem Dafoe. There is extraordinary artistry in the finished work, filmed by the worlds leading high altitude cinematographers, with works by Chopin, Grieg, Vivaldi, Beethoven and new works by Richard Tognetti.

          With over 200 million album sales worldwide, and remaining the only artist to chart seven consecutive US No. 1s, Whitney Houston was the voice of a generation. Coming from an esteemed lineage of singers, Whitney was destined to be plucked from her gospel-singing roots to rule the... world stage. She inspired a generation of singers from Mariah Carey to Beyonce and her unforgettable performance of The Star-Spangled Banner unlocked an anthem that had for so long been dismissed by many black artists. But all these achievements have become a footnote to a story of addiction and self-destruction. With salacious stories filling the columns of tabloid papers and magazines, Whitney had the voice of an angel onstage, but was being torn apart by her demons offstage. Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Kevin MacDonald (MARLEY, TOUCHING THE VOID) and from two-time Academy Award-winning producer Simon Chinn (MAN ON WIRE, SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN), the film will for the first time, give audiences an unprecedented and unique look into Whitney's life. This will be an unflinching and honest portrait of a rare talent told by those closest to her. Made with full access to her family and collaborators, the film will showcase exclusive audio and never-before-seen video archive from her time as a recording artist and performer. By casting her story and her work in a new and revealing light, WHITNEY HOUSTON will reassess the life and legacy of one of musics biggest stars.
