Special movie panorama about K-2 – “K-2 –  the great dream”/“K2 – il grande sogno”, Italy, 2000, Abele Blanc, Carlo A. Rossi, 60’

Is it possible for you to climb to the top of K2 whilst filming the feat? Is it possible to climb the 8,611 metres of the second highest mountain in the world whilst commenting on your own pictures?Abele Blanc did just that, achieving not only the first Valdostan climb on K2, but also an authentic and original story. Abele Blanc, together with another Valdostan guide, Marco Camandona and the Brazilian Waldermar Niclevicz, reached K2 on 29th July 2000, to honour the memory of three Valdostan guides, Mario Puchoz, Ubaldo Rey and Sergio Viotto, members of the first successful expedition to K2 in 1954. For Abele, who was born in 1954, the completion of this exploit was the realisation of a great dream, as well as the eleventh “8000” climbed by him.
