The feature documentary movie Mount St. Elias, which follows three ski mountaineers as they attempt to conquer the Alaskan peak, has been honored at the Alaskan International Film Festival.
The movie was voted 'Best Documentary Feature' at the awards ceremony in Anchorage last week and fought off competition from several hundred submissions received from over two dozen countries around the globe to claim the accolade. The feature already won Best Film and took to honors in the Adventure category at the X-Dance Action Sports Film Festival in February.
Set against the backdrop of the second-highest mountain in both the United States and Canada, as it sits on the border of both nations, Mount St. Elias is about a visionary borderline experience where unparalleled physical and mental pressure pushes them to the absolute limit.
It's a movie about men who accept mountains as a challenge. A process whose vision becomes a real adventure. Men who, formed by their origins, want to experience their passion as intensely as possible and above all, want to survive.
