Nimsdai’s film, 14 Peaks: Nothing is Impossible had its world premiere at the prestigious DOC NYC film festival.
The film, which was shot by Nimsdai and his Sherpa team across 100 hours, follows Nimsdai’s 2019 mission to summit all 14 of the world’s peaks over 8,000m in just 7 months. The previous world record was just shy of 8 years. Named the 14/7 Project Possible challenge, it was a feat most thought impossible, likening the undertaking to ‘swimming to the moon,’ in its difficulty.
The story follows Nimsdai and his team as they battle the elements, as they traverse Mount Everest, K2, and other iconic peaks through extreme weather, life-or-death decisions, and the emotional weight of Nimsdai’s mother’s illness back home. You can read more here.
The world premier was followed by Q&A with Nimsdai and director Torquil Jones, who crafted Nimsdai’s story over 18 months, to bring it to life in dramatic style. Fans were able to ask questions and hear first-hand the reasons behind the challenge.
