Full Length Documentary Film

Two women push the bounds of friendship, climbing conventions, and scientific research on the 2,000-foot granite face of Mozam­bique’s second highest mountain, Mount Namuli. The Lost Mountain is a community-backed film about the spirit of exploration and what happens when a team of rock climbers, biologists, and conservationists set off on a daring and uncon­ventional expedition into one of the world’s least-explored and most-threatened habitats.
