Winner—Audience Award, Documentary, Sundance Film Festival 2015
A winner at Sundance 2015, Meru gives viewers a thrilling look into the high-stakes game of big-wall climbing, where conquering the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru is the ultimate prize. Sitting at the headwaters of the sacred Ganges River in Northern India, the Shark’s Fin has seen more failed attempts by elite climbing teams over the past 30 years than any other ascent in the Himalayas. After suffering dramatic setbacks in their lives, three close friends who are among the world’s best professional climbers battle their complicated pasts, inner demons and nature’s harshest elements in an attempt to confront the Shark’s Fin at last.
