Large-Format Documentary Follows Six Climbers’ Journey to Summit of Kilimanjaro
October 8, 2007, Harrington Park, NJ... Janson Media today announced the release to worldwide television and VOD markets of KILIMANJARO: TO THE ROOF OF AFRICA, a large-format documentary following a 45-mile journey up the highest freestanding mountain in the world. Produced and directed by Emmy-award-winning David Breashears, KILIMANJARO tells the inspirational story of six climbers, aged 12 to 64, who make their way to a snow-covered volcano soaring above the African plain.
Photographed in the world’s largest and most evocative motion picture format, this film takes its viewers to the expansive slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro where they can experience the exceptional climates and landscapes of this mystical mountain in Tanzania. Along their journey, the trekkers encounter strange landscapes and endure harsh conditions as they travel through five climate zones ranging from the lower rainforest reaches of Kilimanjaro to the summit’s artic glaciers, all the while learning about the formation of the African continent and the Great Rift Valley. The marvels and mysteries of the wildlife roaming Kilimanjaro’s barren slopes are all explored en route.
Produced in 2002 for release in Giant Screen theaters, KILIMANJARO: TO THE ROOF OF AFRICA (1 x 40’), has been converted to HDTV, and is now available for the first time to worldwide television and VOD markets exclusively through Janson Media.
