MENDIAK - 1976
2021, Spain, 86min
Director: Luis Arrieta Etxeberria
An adventure, a journey, a success forgotten in memory. In 1976, a group of young people from Pamplona made history by successfully reaching the summit of Shakhaur (7,116 m) in Afghanistan. It was "the first Basque seven-thousander", but the joy soon turned to sadness. During the descent, an accident occurred: One of them died and another was seriously injured. Thanks to the help of a Polish expedition, they managed to save the life of their companion and meanwhile forge a friendship that has lasted until today.
