Everest – Surviving a mountainous calamity

This trailer for “Everest” hits close to home especially with what has happened at Mount Kinabalu Malaysia last week. Like everybody else in  Singapore, learning of the tragedy which struck the young students of Tanjong Katong Primary School shocked me terribly.

Originally I had wanted to write about how all these human survival stories seem to focus on the trials and triumphs of a distinct group. Hopefully Hollywood will learn to embrace global stories as well.
