Fundraiser for the Himalayan Trust as organised and run by Jen Hayes, founder of Nepal Aid.

Join us for a private screening of 'Everest' at EVENT Cinemas, Queen Street, Auckland; all funds raised donated to the Himalayan Trust in aid of the Earthquake Rebuild in Nepal. Movie screens from 8.30 - 10.30pm on Monday 12th October 2015; we ask that guests arrive at 8pm.

Everest is an American film based on the real events of the 1996 Mount Everest disaster. It will focus on the summit and survival attempts of two expedition groups, the one led by Scott Fischer (played by Jake Gyllenhaal), and the one led by Rob Hall (played by Jason Clarke).

Rob Hall was a Kiwi expedition leader best known for being head guide of the 1996 Mount Everest expedition in which he, a fellow guide, and two clients perished. A best-selling account of the expedition was given in Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air. At the time of his death, Hall had just completed his fifth summit of Everest, more at that time than any other non-Sherpa mountaineer. Hall met his future wife, New Zealand medical doctor Jan Arnold, during his Everest summit attempt in 1990. Hall and Arnold climbed Mount McKinley for their first date, and later, the two married. In 1993, Rob Hall summited Everest along with Arnold. In the catastrophic 1996 season, Arnold would have accompanied Hall on his Everest expedition, but she was pregnant. Two months after Hall died on the descent from Everest she gave birth to Sarah, their daughter.
