LOVED BY ALL, THE STORY OF APA SHERPA2017, Canada, 13min
Director: Eric Crosland
The Sherpa Apa has climbed Everest twenty one times, more than any other human being. Having grown up in the remote region of Khumbu in Nepal, Apa found himself having to quit school aged twelve to work as a porter and thus his dreams of studying to become a medical doctor vanished into thin air. This is a common happening among the Nepalese Sherpas, a story that Apa, wishes to change with his work through the Apa Sherpa Foundation.
