2018 IAMF GRAND PRIZE, Kurt Diemberger
Summits and Secrets
Friday 14, Sala BBK 19:30
Kurt Diemberger is the only person alive who has climbed two mountains of over 8,000 metres (Broad Peak in 1957 and Dhaulagiri in 1960) without bottled oxygen. Apart from Broad Peak and Dhaulagiri, he has climbed another six out of the remaining fourteen 8,000-metre peaks. This cameraman and filmmaker is one of Europe’s most influential alpinists and is also, doubtlessly, an untameable survivor. Become acquainted with the life he lived, camera in hand, in the upper reaches of the mountains or at his desk, pen on paper, writing about the same mountains and their folk.
