    Monte Sarmiento - Die weisse Diva

    Jochen Schmoll (2016)

    All the mountains have been climbed? Not at all! Monte Sarmiento at the southernmost end of South America is not even 2,300 metres high, and yet mountaineers have only reached the summit twice with over twenty attempts so far. In order to fulfill a mountaineering dream, the Hamburg geologist, photographer and Patagonian expert Ralf Gantzhorn travels to Monte Sarmiento for the seventh time. Three friends accompany him to this company, which begins a sailing trip in the port city of Ushuaia. Even the journey across the sea, with views of green forests, mighty glaciers and untouched mountains, captivates the mountaineers.

    Mensch und Fels

    Mensch und Fels

    Wolfgang Gorter (1955)

    A film that differs considerably from normal mountain production: it aims to explain to those without mountaineering experience the reasons that can lead a climber to attempt, on his own, a summit. His language is extremely close to the theme: linear and devoid of any complacency, both photographic and narrative.

    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.
