Dave Ohlson's mountain climbing documentary K2: Siren of the Himalayas follows the attempts of two world-class explorers to scale the second-highest peak in the world. The efforts of Jake Meyer and Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner are intercut with archival footage and photographs from an attempt to climb the same slope in 1909 by a pair of Italians. This approach shows how this physically grueling task has changed over one-hundred years, and how in some ways it stays the same.
