The Epic of Everest by Captain John Noel is one of the most remarkable films in the BFI National Archive collection. Stunningly restored with a newly commissioned score by Simon Fisher Turner (The Great White Silence, Caravaggio), The Epic of Everest screens across the UK and forms the centrepiece of the Extreme Summits season at BFI Southbank.
