Anyone who follows climbing in the Himalaya knows the name of Miss Elizabeth Hawley, the woman who keeps the definitive record of who climbed what mountain and who actually reached the summit. But not everyone knows Miss Hawley’s story, which is why plans are in the works to create a documentary of her life.
A new film called Keeper of the Mountains is in the early stages of production and will chronicle Miss Hawley’s journey around the world, eventually settling in Nepal, where she began her career chronicling the climbs of the big mountains there. That was 48 years ago, and she’s been doing it ever since.
Back in mid-July, the filmmaker behind his project created a Kickstarter page to seek funding to complete the film. They reached their target goal, and are now ready to move ahead with producing the film. That page has more information about the project and Miss Hawley herself. You can also view the teaser trailer for it below.
