PASANG: In the Shadow of Everest

USA, Feature Documentary, 2022, 71 min

Winner at Banff and seven other film festivals

PASANG: In the Shadow of Everest brings to life the untold and inspiring story of Pasang Lhamu Sherpa, the Indigenous trailblazer who battled racism, gender discrimination, and political opposition in her quest to become the first Nepali woman to summit Mt. Everest. As an uneducated Indigenous woman and a Buddhist in a Hindu kingdom, Pasang’s dream of scaling the legendary mountain pit her against her family, foreign climbers, her own government, and nature itself. Her courageous, tragic journey would greatly move her country, inspiring new generations to reach for their rights. This is Pasang’s story. Subtitled.

Directed by Nancy Svendsen
