Overview

We should never take mountains lightly. Because, as this short film makes beautifully clear, the processes that combine to create, sustain and, ultimately, destroy the world’s mountains are elemental, powerful and deep with meaning — meaning that may exceed our capacity to measure. One line from the narration captures the essence of mountains perfectly: “All the good and evil things that happen in the world are of no consequence to the magnitude of their scale.”
