Personal Quote:

[on Everest (2015)] It's fantastic to be able to do a mountain movie where you can cast women as well. It's not like you see in male-driven stories when they will try to shoehorn in the women; in this case there is no shoehorning. They are actually part of the story, and that's the reality. The drama that was happening at Base Camp, and at home at the same time, is very much part of the story. See more »
