We’re honoured to be helping the BFI launch the DVD of the remarkable Epic of Everest over at Rough Trade East on Brick Lane this Friday (17th). As well as showing the film, our host Luke Turner (editor of the best music website around The Quietus) will be talking with guests Sandra Noel – daughter of the filmmaker Capt. John Noel and a major part in the film’s restoration and creation of this new print – and composer Simon Fisher Turner (The Great White Silence) whose fantastic soundtrack is a haunting combination of electronic music, found sounds, Western and Nepalese instruments and vocals.
Advance copies of the DVD will be on sale on the night for a special event price. For more details and ticket info visit the Rough Trade website. This event is free – just get there early to guarantee a good seat.
