On Oct. 5, 1999, legendary climber Alex Lowe was tragically lost in a deadly avalanche on the Himalayan peak, Mount Shishapangma. Miraculously surviving the avalanche was Alex’s best friend and climbing partner, the renowned mountaineer Conrad Anker who went on to marry Alex’s widow and help raise his three sons.
Filmmaker, photographer and National Geographic Explorer, Max Lowe, turns the lens on his own family in the film Torn. As the body of his father is uncovered 17 years after his death, this story gives a profoundly intimate look at the Lowe-Anker family. Max captures their intense personal journey toward understanding Alex as a man, not a myth and the emotionally and physically harrowing trek to Shishapangma, where they will finally put him to rest.
