RUSSIA, 2017-2019, 20 MIN., DOCUMENTARY
Director: Maxim Nikonov
The first documentary film in the format of virtual reality about the ascent to Elbrus – the highest point of Europe. Every year hundreds of people come to Elbrus to climb to the top of this volcano. What causes them to endure fatigue and pain, lack of comfort and severe weather? Why, despite all the difficulties that travelers are waiting for at every step, do people still aspire to the summit, even if they stay there only a few minutes, after hours of a long, exhausting journey? To answer these questions the viewer must go all the way to the top together with the film group.
