The article offers a reading of Jacek Hugo-Bader’s controversial reportage Długi film o miłości. Powrót na Broad Peak (2014), which is frequently viewed as a story about the tragedy in Karakorum. The author of the article emphasizes that this piece may be also read in a more universal way as a reflection about non-fulfilment. She analyses the literary representations of multidimensional spatial experiences in the highest mountains such as sensual responses to extreme altitude and temperature, the life-and-death threshold experience as well as the spiritual relationship with the mountains. She also remarks other literary aspects of Hugo-Bader’s work, for instance the extreme “embodiment” reportage of Gonzo style.
