Documentary Meru begins screenings today at Cinema du Parc for at least one week and is also screening at Cineplex Odeon in Montreal and in other theaters across North America. It’s directed by husband and wife Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhely. It won the audience award for best US documentary at this year’s Sundance. It follows Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk in their goal to climb the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru in India in 2011 after a failed attempt in 2008. In the past 30 years, no other mountain in the Himalayas has had more failed attempted by elite climbing teams. Due to its harsh conditions and nightmarish obstacles, Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru is possibly considered the ultimate challenge in mountain climbing.
