Mountain is an epic cinematic and musical collaboration between the ACO and BAFTA-nominated Sherpa director Jennifer Peedom, narrated by two-time Academy Award® nominated actor Willem Dafoe. Making its world premiere in Sydney on Monday June 12th.
Bringing music and film together as part of both Vivid LIVE and the Sydney Film Festival, Mountain is a unique musical journey through vistas that few have visited and none have seen in quite this way.
Shot by the world’s leading high altitude cinematographers, with narration written by celebrated British writer, Robert Macfarlane, this film explores the nature of our modern fascination with mountains. At these events the ACO will perform live with the film.
Throughout production, composer Richard Tognetti worked with Jennifer Peedom to assemble a stunning soundscape to mirror the serenity, magnitude and terror of the landscapes filmed, with works by Chopin, Grieg, Vivaldi, Corelli, Beethoven and new works by Richard himself.
