    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.

    Matterhorn - Das ist der gipfel DVD

    Matterhorn - Das ist der gipfel

    Hans-Jürgen Panitz (1998)

    This is a cinematic essay about the Matterhorn. About its morphology and the myth it represents; the attraction that awakens and the economic aspects, the winter and mountaineering sports that people practice, and the accidents and catastrophes that have happened there. More than 500 people have lost their lives on this very mountain up to today. Death in paradise not only fascinated the people of the 19th century. Since then the Matterhorn has become a fixation, a point of escape and a desire for many alpinists. The town of Zermatt has become a place of pilgrimage for climbers and tourists from all over the world. The same happened to Cervinia on the south side of the mountain.

    Von Kastelruth nach Hollywood

    Hans-Jürgen Panitz (1986)

    Luis Trenker was born in Kastelruth 95 years ago. With perseverance and ability he became actor, director and author of many of his films and soon realized that Val Gardena was too small for his ambitions. In America he made two of his best films: 'The Prodigal Son' and 'The Emperor of California'. Because of these two films in particular, Luis Trenker became known at the moment as the European John Ford. He was a pioneer, a passionate, a powerful king of mountain film. A sentimental person who made his films out of his stomach. In the documentary Trenker reports on his experiences, a kaleidoscope of successful years, a review of color and power.
