A film by Marie Ashton and Dyanna Taylor

The dramatic story of the first American ascent of one of the world's highest peaks was recently digitally re-mastered. Meet on film the remarkable women depicted in Arlene Blum's best-selling book, Annapurna: A Woman's Place.

This is the inspiring story of thirteen women who in 1978 did what no American had done before. They climbed Annapurna I, one of the world's highest and most dangerous mountains. Filmmakers Marie Ashton & Dyanna Taylor joined the expedition to capture on film the drama of this historic adventure. Their compelling footage follows the expedition from the lowlands of Nepal, across glaciers and steep ice slopes, to the triumph of the summit and the tragic loss of two team members.
