Everest '96: Now with More Minutiae!

"Agonizingly vivid" is a fair description of Storm Over Everest, yet another rehashing of the 1996 disaster, by climber/documentarian David Breashears. Premiering May 13 on PBS's Frontline, the two-hour film combines interviews with survivors, including guide Neal Beidleman and climber Beck Weathers (but noticeably no Jon Krakauer) with footage gathered in '07 on Everest and in scenes re-created at Snowbird, Utah. It's short on new insight, but fine cinematography and recaps from those who were there will thrill Everestphiles.
