Can Mount Everest be climbed on a vegetarian, that is, animal-free diet? In this film Kuntal Joisher, an Indian climber, goes one step further. His equipment, for example, contains no pig bristle or down feather: for him respect for nature means having compassion for the animal world. Extreme Respect is all about his arguments, motivation and approach. For this short documentary, Joisher and Dutch-Italian director Kevin Kok filmed in the Dolomites, where the short and simple answer to the question was: yes, Vegan Everest is possible.
