Die wilden siebziger

The year 2008 sees the 30th anniversary of the first ascent of Mount Everest by the Austrians. On 3rd May 1978, Wolfgang Nairz, Robert Schauer and Horst Bergmann, together with Ang Phu, stood on the summit of the highest mountain on Earth. On 8th May, Reinhold Messner and Peter Habeler reached the summit without the help of supplemental oxygen. The Wild Seventies is a film on this pioneering era during which a small mountaineering elite, for about ten years, learned together, went on expeditions, researched the medical foundations of high-altitude mountaineering and put Alpine sponsorship on the agenda. Their common undertakings culminated in the first ascent of Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen.
