- Opening Address from UIAA President, Peter Muir
- Screening of The Porter: The Untold Story at Everest (click for trailer)
A young privileged American "Nathaniel J. Menninger" attempts to make history at Everest by becoming a Himalaya Porter. But in his journey to succeed, experiences a harrowing reality instead. This is an inside look at the darker side of Everest. At the strength, pride and pain of those whose support it. And at just how hard it is for a naive foreigner to attempt the same. This is The Porter.
