    WARSAW: Broad Peak by acclaimed Polish film director Leszek Dawid was presented at the First Cut+ Works in Progress in Karlovy Vary’s online edition Eastern Promises.

    Broad Peak is a dramatic story based on real events of Maciej Berbeka – the legendary world-renowned Himalayan climber who wanted to reach the top of one of the most dangerous mountains in the world. It is from his perspective that we get to see the backstory of the first ever winter ascent on the Broad Peak summit, accomplished by the Polish expedition in 2013. A tale of beautiful yet destructive passion alongside an incredible determination that pushes a man to the very edge. Ultimately, it is also a moving love story.

    Initiated and produced by East Studio.

    Broad Peak is the first Polish feature film about Himalayan mountaineering. To faithfully convey the realities of the expedition and bring the audience closer to the power of the highest mountains in the world, a crew of filmmakers flew to Karakoram. The shots were taken at the base of K2 and the Broad Peak, with the latter at over 5,000 metres above sea level high. Additionally, shooting that lasted from July 2018 to January 2020, took place in Warsaw (e.g. at the Olympic Center), in Zakopane - at the Berbeka’s family home, as well as in Radom, in the Baltic Sea area and in the massif and on the summit of Mont Blanc in the Alps (Aosta Valley).

    The producers are now looking for an international sales agent.
