Directed by Jennifer Peedom and featuring interviews with members of the Sherpa community and the climbers who were preparing to summit when the disaster struck, Sherpa chronicles an historic moment in which the Sherpas and their families consider the future of Everest climbing and whether anything can justify the dangers they face.
