Mothered By Mountains


A man’s place is on the mountain, a woman’s place is in the home—that’s the message Pasang Lhamu had always heard but was never willing to accept. Her go-against-the-grain nature made her Nepal’s first mountaineering instructor and National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year. What was supposed to be a film about women empowerment becomes something so much more as Pasang and Sareena, a punk rocker and unlikely climbing companion, attempt a first ascent together.
