    Allein

    Allein

    Franz Walter (2019)

    On the occasion of his 50th birthday, Robert Jasper gives himself a very particular present – an expedition for him alone. The climber and mountain guide is a minimalist. He knows how to master critical situations on the mountain in a relaxed and concentrated way. On the eastern coast of Greenland, he sets off from the village Kulusuk in a sea kayak. After 12 days of paddling and carrying heavy loads, he arrives at his basecamp on the foot of the Molar Spire. He starts to climb the almost 500-meter high rock face solo. In addition to the climbing difficulties and the enormous strain, he also has to struggle with the heavy burden of extreme solitude.

    The Alex Megos Formula

    Frank Kretschmann (2016)

    A film portrait about the young world-class climber Alexander Megos. The viewers go on a four-part journey in search of the secret formula as they join Alex on his travels and during his climbing projects and get to know his home and origin. The viewers try to find proof, leaning on basic concepts from physics like gravity, friction, momentum, and others, of the existence of the formula. All four episodes take a look at Alex from different vantage points and different subject areas, always connected to an analogy from physics. The search for the formula leads to the conclusion that Alex is more than the sum of his traits.
