    Der Kampf ums Matterhorn Vod

    Der Kampf ums Matterhorn

    Nunzio Malasomma (1934)

    Sounded version of the 1928 film 'Der Kampf ums Matterhorn'. The added sound track included music composed by Schmidt-Boelckeb and dubbed dialogs by different actors. This version is slightly shorter than the silent film due to the disappearance of the movie titles. The story, based on the novel by Carl Haensel recreates the struggle between Edward Whymper and Jean-Antoine Carrel for the first successful ascent of the Matterhorn in 1865. In 1938 two new versions of the movie were filmed under the direction of Luis Trenker, who acted again in the role of Carrel. One version was shot in German (Der Berg ruft) and the other in English (The Challenge).

    1865-2015 - 150 ans de l'alpinisme

    1865-2015 - 150 ans de l'alpinisme

    Cedric Bejeannin (2015)

    150 years ago the summit of the Matterhorn, 4478m was reached for the first time. The Matterhorn, with its performance and its tragic end, marks the end of the golden age of mountaineering, a period during which man changed his vision of the mountain and especially of the Alps. This period of the golden age was marked by the association of men and summits. The mountains became a game, a sport, a source of competition and exploration. How did this uncontrollable attraction between these pioneers and these summits arise, how did they achieve these exploits, who are they, what has changed for humans and mountaineering? What about today...?

    Luis Trenker - Pionier und Egomane

    Luis Trenker - Pionier und Egomane

    Karin Duregger (2016)

    Even more than 25 years after his death, Luis Trenker is still an icon of the mountains: no one else has ensured such a lasting popularisation of the living environment in the (South) Tyrolean Alps. Whether as a film pioneer or as a TV presenter, he captivated an audience of millions. A gnarly nature boy in a felt hat and a mountaineer's shirt: Luis Trenker, who died in 1990, is still remembered today. In the 1920s and 1930s, the actor, screenwriter and director shaped the young genre of 'mountain film'. His films attracted the masses to the cinema - and at the same time fascinated the dictators of the time, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

    Das Matterhorn - Vom Mythos zur Marke

    Das Matterhorn - Vom Mythos zur Marke

    Gerald Salmina (2015)

    On 14 July 1865 the Matterhorn was first climbed. Bergwelten takes this event as an opportunity to take a look at the most exciting events on the most famous mountain in the Alps. From the first summit ascent, the first ascent of the north face in 1931 and the legendary winter solo entrance of the Italian Walter Bonatti in 1965, to the unique achievements of today's mountaineers. The film impresses with spectacular climbing shots and unique shots of the film work in the wall. And it accompanies people whose lives are inseparably linked to the unique mountain on the Swiss-Italian border. The Zermatt mountain guide Michi Lerjen grew up on the Swiss side of the mountain. Hervé Barmasse, on the other hand, comes from the Italian side - as a scion of a mountain guide family, he knows the Matterhorn better than anyone else.
