Filmmaker Jerzy Porebski directs another brilliant feature about the history of Polish mountaineering. This time focussing on the Alpine Club of Zakopane, 'the smallest of all Polish Alpine clubs but its members are among the most prominent mountaineering personalities in the country.'
The Zakopane Alpine Club is the smallest alpine club in Poland yet its members are among some of the country's most important mountaineering personalities. The daring expeditions organised by the club became recognised as some of the most important in mountaineering history, including the first winter ascent of Manaslu and the first winter ascent of Cho Oyu. Zakopanians highlights a unique group of people who have dedicated their lives to living and working in the high mountains. The majority of the club's members are mountain guides and mountain rescue participants, whose friendship and teamwork is reflected by their unparalleled achievements in the high mountains.
