Manaslu tells the story of Hans Kammerlander, one of the greatest mountaineers of our times, who became famous in 1996 for completing the fastest ascent of Mount Everest followed by the first ski run from the summit. The documentary also explains how he has coped with life and death: he lost his best friend at the Manaslu in 1991, and 26 years later in 2017 he confronts his memories and prepares to complete the same ascent.
After the screening there will be a discussion with mountaineers and alpine guides Jonatan Larrañaga and Marc Toralles.
