MOUNTAINS-1976. trailer



The Navarrese expedition to Shakhaur (7,116 m) in the Hindu Kush, Afghanistan, in 1976 went down in history as “the first seven thousand Basques”. That summit turned a group of dreamers into anonymous pioneers. An unknown story, full of challenges, dreams and adventures, but also of pain. During the descent, Leandro Arbeloa lost his life and another colleague was seriously injured. A year later, while climbing Couloir Gervasutti on Mont Blanc, Javier Pastor and Julián Lasterra, other members of that expedition, died. MENDIAK 1976 is about passion and love for the mountains, youth, exploration and freedom. But also about memory and friendship in a world in constant change. Abentura bat, bidaia bat, oroimeean ahaztutako arrakasta bat. 1976an, Iruñeko gazte talde batek history egin zuen Shakhaur (7,116 m) gailurrera iritsi zenean, Afghanistan. Lehenengo euskal zazpimilakoa izan zen. Baina gailurreko lorpenaren alaitasuna tristura bihurtu zen berehala, jaitsieran istripu bat gertatu baitzen: espediziokideetako bat hil egin zen eta beste bat larriki zauritu. Poland espedizio baten laguntzari esker, bigarrena bizirik salbatzea lortu zuten, eta gaurdaino iraun duen nafarren eta poloniarren arteko adiskidetasuna piztu zen. 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.
