The journey of nine "peace climbers" from different faiths and cultures as they attempt to summit the tallest mountain in the world. Filmed on location in Nepal, Tibet, Israel, Palestine, Jordan, U.A.E. and the United States, Everest: A Climb for Peace, airing Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at 7 p.m. on WXXI World (cable 524/DT21.2), focuses on Palestinian Ali Bushnaq and Israelis Dudu Yifrah and Micha Yaniv. Setting aside their differences, they come together to forge a path of teamwork and cooperation. This, however, is easier said than done. Each believes their respective nations, embroiled in a brutal war for years, lie on the right side of the conflict. A socially relevant film about peace, war and the human spirit, Everest: A Climb for Peace features spectacular Everest footage, including a dramatic rescue near the summit.
