This documentary chronicles the lives of the indigenous porters who make possible the ascent of K2, the second highest mountain in the world. Amid breathtaking scenery, the film depicts the courage and everyday sacrifices of these porters who, through their interactions with international climbers, provide a fresh look into the cultures and traditions of Pakistan. Filmmaker Iara Lee, who founded the Cultures of Resistance Network, illustrates the inequities the porters endure in this risky profession, especially in terms of job protection, safety and medical care. Following the screening, Lee will participate in a discussion via Skype. In Urdu, Balti, Portuguese with English subtitles. Camera/Editor: Jawad Sharif. Producer/Director: Iara Lee.
