For this feature-length documentary Michael Dillon revisits his award-winner From the Ocean to the Sky, about Edmund Hillary's Ganges jet boat expedition. Back in 1977, Dillon filmed Hillary and crew (including son Peter Hillary) as they jet boated from the mouth of the Ganges to the base of the Himalayas, then set out to climb peak Akash Parbat. Dillon has remastered existing and unseen footage, and interviewed crew members about Hillary's last big expedition.

A Kiwi Must Watch

A stunning tale of our own kiwi legend 'Sir Ed' on his most stunning adventure yet, full of incredible scenes with mesmerising cinematography throughout.

Not only a wild ride through the turbulent times testing the limits of Hamilton jet-boats but a true adventure unlike any seen in modern day.

Some great laughs mixed with inspirational viewing, this is a must watch!
