The Eight Mountains

Directed by Felix Van Groeningen & Charlotte Vandermeersch
Italy, Belgium
147 minutes
In this Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize winner, two lifelong friends grow apart and back together through the twists and turns of life, set and shot against the stunning backdrop of the Italian Alps and the Himalayas.
From 4pm AEST (2.30pm ACST) on Friday, 9 February, all TFF Katherine tickets must be purchased from Katherine Cinema in person. Tickets will not be sold online.
Directors Felix van Groeningen (The Broken Circle Breakdown) and Charlotte Vandermeersch achieve another remarkable film with the story of Pietro and Bruno who meet in the Italian Alps as children and become fast friends. Over their divergent lives, they reconnect again and again around the mountain where they met. A potent exploration of friendship, resilience, and recognition, this is an unforgettable film intimately felt, and beautifully filmed in magnificent locations. “A movie with air in its lungs and love in its heart,” to quote The Guardian.

Winner, Four David di Donatello Awards (Italian “Oscars”)
This film has mystery and passion, it climbs mountainous heights and rewards you with the opposite of vertigo: a sort of exaltation.
