    Die Berge, die Menschen, der Wahn Vod

    Die Berge, die Menschen, der Wahn

    Stefan König (1998)

    Questions are kept in mind: what impelled and drove the people into these extreme landscapes, onto such dangerous heights? What do they get from the mountains and what do they do to the mountains? These questions are the basis for this two hour documentary. This is the first film which takes a unique and comprehensive approach to this extensive subject. There is no commentary necessary, as the protagonists giving their account of the cultural history are experts in their field and quite charismatic personalities. This documentary film is not only conveyed through the lavish pictures or alpinistic enthusiasm, but through the individuals narrating each chapter.

    Into the light

    Jochen Schmoll (2014)

    Majlis al Jinn, a huge subterranean chamber in Oman, is big enough to house the Great Pyramid of Giza. Climbers Chris Sharma and Stefan Glowacz attempt an ascent up the massive arch and back to the light of the surface. After rappelling down a 170-metre drop, Chris Sharma and his partner set out for their record-breaking ascent from the deepest point of the cave. Fighting gravity they follow the enormous arch suspended upside down much of the time. It is a ground-breaking climb back into the light. The route has never been attempted before and counts as the world’s longest roof climb with 13 pitches.
