'Sciana Ceni (The Wall of Shadows)' the film directed by Polish filmmaker Eliza Kubarska takes the viewer to the Jannu or Kumbhakarna (Himalaya, 7710m) against the backdrop of an epic activity carried out by Russian mountaineers Dmitry Golovchenko and Sergey Nilov in spring 2019. But in the film, the real protagonist is the Sherpa family who work for the expedition: their concerns and fears about the sacred mountain, the conditioning weight of the salary for the services rendered, the parental yearning to be able to offer studies to their son, and the tense situation generated the situation of the climbers who are tragically delayed in their challenge.
