THE SUMMIT Director Nick Ryan

The New York Times calls THE SUMMIT "a pulse-pounding success." This Sundance jury winner (now on VOD) reveals the unfolding mystery of how eleven climbers perished on their way down from a successful 2008 ascent to the summit of K2, the victims of bad luck, poorly executed planning, and avalanches. SCREEN's Mike McNamara talks with Nick about his greatest challenge in getting THE SUMMIT made, how did he manage to pull his financing together for the production and what is Nick's advice to fellow filmmakers fighting to bring their stories to the screen?
