A documentary film by Jerzy Porębski dedicated to Jerzy Kukuczka, one of the world’s best high-altitude mountaineers, the second man to have captured the Crown of the Himalayas, the legendary climber who died over 20 years ago. What was so special about him? How did he contribute to the world’s Himalayan mountaineering? How is he perceived and recalled by other legendary Himalayan mountaineers and his family? What were and what are now the goals and motivation in the high mountains? Is he at the present time still an example for other people to follow? These are the questions asked by Jerzy Porębski in the film.

4. “Mój pionowy świat” ("My vertical world") Jerzy Kukuczka, the album (PL)


“Mój pionowy świat” Jerzy Kukuczka, an album edition of the popular autobiographical book by Jerzy Kukuczka. It’s full of passion, commitment and dedication to mountains. It presents his way to climb all fourteen eight-thousenders, his emotional attitude to mountains and his climbing partners and a brief outline of Poland of that time and the situation the Polish Himalayan mountaineering developed in. But above all, it introduces readers into the psychological portrait of the best Polish mountaineer of XX century and is a great opportunity to “get to know” Jerzy Kukuczka, his mountain stories, reflections and on occasion even his desires.

“Na Szczytach Świata” ("At the top of the world") Jerzy Kukuczka and Tomasz Malanowski, the book (PL)


“Na szczytach świata” is a record of high-altitude memories of Jerzy Kukuczka, the best Polish climber of XX century. A long interview conducted and compiled by Tomasz Malanowski, a frank and open discussion of many mountain topics - the difficult beginning being the roots of his later Himalayan successes, struggling with yourself, the routes established on the world’s fourteen highest summits, climbing partners, death and friendship and the choice whether to help and put yourself at risk or save your own life, complicated preparations for expeditions which often started with paint works on factory chimneys as well as many other issues that were close to Jerzy’s heart. This is a simple and honest dialogue, far from the mountain martyrdom.
