The film ‘Russian wall K2’ has received the Gold Alpine Camera in 2009. This was presented at the international film festival in Graz. This is the oldest mountaineering film festival in existence.
The judges noted themes of the movie which included the importance of team work in achieving their goals.
The Russians made a pioneering summit of the west face of K2 in 2007. They said that it was a team effort that made them realize this dream. They could not have done it had they been working as individuals.
