Jeff Lowe's Metanoia
Jeff Lowe is portrayed as the great legend that he is, but then his myth is deconstructed, exposing his failures as a human being who neglected his business and family. Just when he started to change for the better, his health began deteriorating and he was forced to face every mountaineer's biggest fear. The film shows that anybody can change, even if it means accepting the worst. A touching story brilliantly told, with a great balance of archival footage, interviews, music and sound, dealing with huge topics but staying humble and not becoming pathetic.
