Deepsea Challenge

The footage is breathtaking. DEEPSEA CHALLENGE is a celebration of science, courage, and extraordinary human aspiration.

Mountain

Jaw-dropping exploration of our obsessions with high places and how they have come to capture our imagination.

Peaks were places of peril, not beauty. Why, then, are we now drawn to mountains?
Filmed by the world's leading high-altitude cinematographers, narrated by William Dafoe and set to a specially curated musical performance by the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Mountain captures the fierce beauty of some of the world's most treacherous landscapes and the awe they inspire.
