Achille Compagnoni and Lino Lacedelli, two Italian climbers, made the first ever ascent of K2 on July 31, 1954. Interestingly, it took a local team of climbers from Pakistan another 60 years to make their maiden ascent to K2. Director Iara Lee's film K2 And The Invisible Footmen follows this Pakistani expedition in 2014 called 'K2 2014 Pakistan Expedition: Sixty Years Later'. The team of six climbers from Pakistan, who were former high-altitude porters, were assisted by two Italian mountaineers to summit the peak. Iara Lee's film unearths the story of these porters in the Karakoram Ranges who are the heroes easily forgotten behind years of successes of climbers on the second highest mountain in the world.
