November 2019: Scott filmed “Dream Mountain” with Climber-Mother-Adventurer Pasang Lhamu Sherpa Akita. Pasang travels to Cholatse (6440m/21130ft) with her two-year old son and husband. In a theme common to many mothers, Pasang is troubled at leaving her son at basecamp but the drive to climb is strong. Beautifully shot (of course), evocative Nepal Himalaya, a story told through the eyes of a woman Sherpa alpinist on a Himalayan peak. This film just won Best Mountain Film at the London Mountain Film Festival.
