Experienced mountaineer Chris Bombardier has never let severe hemophilia B stop him from summitting some of the world’s tallest mountains. In 2017, Chris is partnering with the WEBBY-Award winning production team at Believe Limited to film his journey through Nepal to summit the world’s tallest peak, Mount Everest.
Filming will include the six-month training period leading up to Chris’s journey, and individual interviews with Nepalese hemo- philia community members en route to Everest. A member of Believe Limited’s production team will follow Chris to Everest Base Camp, and remain there to film and manage production for the duration of Chris’s time on Everest. Chris will continue recording his climb on specially designed cameras, logging his journey and eventual summit of Everest.
The climb will showcase Chris’s ability to surmount near-impossible odds despite his hemophilia, and prove the potential of each person with hemophilia to achieve dreams with lifelong access to proper healthcare.
The film will raise world awareness for the deeply disadvantaged Nepalese hemophilia community, which still suffers from the 2015 earthquake. Believe will also create a ten-part documentary web series as an awareness-building and educational tool.
