A powerful and soul-warming story of friendship set against some of the most spectacular vistas on earth, The Eight Mountains tells the story of two childhood friends who reunite as adults in the Italian Alps to build a mountainside cottage which becomes a site of both reflection and reconciliation. Winner of the 2022 Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize, the film uses exquisite beauty and grace to trace the life trajectories of two men whose peak moments and low ebb become one with the landscape that has shaped them both. It’s an exterior journey that leads from the Alps to the Himalayas, but even more, an interior one.
