Netflix released today a teaser for the new Polish historical drama Broad Peak. Check it out!
Broad Peak stars Ireneusz Czop (The Defence, The Mire, Ultraviolet) as legendary Polish mountaineer Maciej Berbeka, a member of the Ice Warriors group who wanted to reach the top of one of the most dangerous mountains in the world.
In 1988, Berbeka makes the first winter ascent of Broad Peak and cheats death by mere inches — a success announced by Andrzej Zawada (Tomasz Sapryk, The Taming of the Shrewd), the leader of the expedition. However, after returning to Poland, it is revealed that Berbeka didn’t actually reach the peak, only the Rocky Summit, twenty meters below the peak. Resentful of his friends’ lies, Berbeka withdraws from mountaineering.
Fast forward twenty-four years, when Krzysztof Wielicki (Lukasz Simlat, Furioza), another participant in the first expedition, contacts Berbeka. With the statement, “We have to finish what we started,” Wielicki attempts to persuade Berbeka to join the next expedition to Broad Peak. He succeeds.
For Berbeka, returning to one of the most dangerous mountains in the world isn’t just about reaching the peak. It’s about clearing his good name and fighting for his honor.
The cast includes Dawid Ogrodnik (How I Fell in Love with a Gangster), Maja Ostaszewska (Klangor), Marcin Czarnik (The Witcher), Piotr Glowacki (The Woods), Maciej Raniszewski (The Teacher), and Maciej Kulig (Komisarz Alex).
Broad Peak, a Netflix Film, will launch globally in September 2022 (date tba). (You can set a reminder for it now.) Stay tuned for updates.
