Hillary: Ocean to Sky

Going beyond his Mt. Everest moment, this documentary on Kiwi legend Sir Edmund Hillary explores the journey he considered his greatest—boating through India's River Ganges in its entirety.

This was the only Hillary expedition that was ever comprehensively filmed, occuring two years after the tragic death of his wife and youngest daughter in an air crash. For Sir Ed and his son Peter Hillary, it was also a healing journey. But it almost ended tragically with the near death and rescue of Sir Ed himself. The expedition is recounted by Peter Hillary as well as many of Sir Ed Hillary's best friends who were on the journey.

This new film is not much more than repurposed footage with some added anecdotage – the illustriously bearded “spiritual adviser”, Jim Wilson, being a particularly charismatic guide. Yet it is full of the roguish ambition of a different era, a testament to ingenuity and the allure of a simple idea.

Full of the roguish ambition of a different era, a testament to ingenuity and the allure of a simple idea. Above all, Hillary: Ocean to Sky is a fine addition to a documentary canon of Hillary’s splendid, selfless legacy.

This recounting of what was endured and achieved is all the richer - and often moving - for being allowed to mature for a few decades.
