4 Years in 10 Minutes. A psychological ascent to Everest
Vintage footage of alien landscapes and mystical mental states, shot by the first Serbian man to climb Mount Everest, is woven with puzzling excerpts from his diary, composing an experimental meditation on a journey to eternal glory, and back to the banality of everyday life; a journey that changed him in ways he never intended.
